Where the Roses Bloom all Year

This poem is dedicated to our own MaryAnne whose love for roses is well known.

Where the Roses Bloom all Year

There is a valley just over the hill
Where the roses bloom all year
I'll go there to tend them
When my work is done down here.

I have no doubt there will be roses
There will be roses everywhere
How could it really be heaven
If there were no roses there?

I know they'll need a gardener
To tend the roses there
I'll volunteer my services
For I have experience here.

I'll see all my friends and relatives
All of those whom I hold dear
Just over the hill in the valley
Where the roses bloom all year.

This was originally posted in another forum and then deleted. In the second line of the last stanza Jack Dallas suggested that I add "whom" between those and I. I agreed, thanked him and did so. Jack is not always an AH!

A very nice poem dedicated to a great person and & also a neat gardener.. :)
Thanks for sharing, RC.
Not really,Addy,:) I mostly tend to my flowers,now.
My tomatoes are like Golf Balls,but are they good.

I just wish I had Red Cloud's talent! Sadly,I do not.

We have another rainy,foggy day!

That pretty much sums up my Poetry,too,Cotton! But I do admire those who can.

Have any of you checked out," Poetry By Loree!" Her poems are of every day happenings, like Red Cloud. A long time member of KFS, she is losing her eyesight,but can still come up with good ones.

Thank you,Red Cloud. This is a lovely Poem,along with,Red Roses In The Snow!

I have Jack's book of Poetry. I just wish he would give more of that to us.

Long ago,Jack said he posted just to stir things up.But he seems to have gone too far. I wish more of the Jack I used to know would show here.

Maybe he will now. Red Roses in The Snow

You should read my Novel. MA. I have a Vietnam Medal of Honor winner, Democrat, who runs for president in it.

She did, and we caught up.

She will be visiting at a Blue Grass festival with another old poster!:)
I am going to the Walnut Valley Bluegrass Festival in September in Winfield Kansas. I and my wife will be staying with Loree for two days.

Loree has written more poems than I have. I've written about 80 or so and she eclipses me by quite a few.

Loree's website looked cool BTW.. loved her poem about her Grandpa's Farm.
I tried to link to it.. this function isn't allowed. ;)
That is why I just gave the name. She was glad to know and hopes to get back to posting.
