Roses: Splendid and More Splendid

June 19, 2012

Roses from Carol’s garden

Roses
by D. H. Lawrence

Nature responds so beautifully.
Roses are only once-wild roses, that were given an extra chance,
So they bloomed out and filled themselves with coloured fulness
Out of sheer desire to be splendid, and more splendid.

My friend and colleague, Carol, brought a bouquet of her home-grown roses to work for everyone to enjoy.  The splendid bouquet graced the Circulation Desk at the library, and I stuck my nose into the soft petals several times a day to inhale their heady fragrance.  Thank you, Carol!!

The bouquet was especially fragrant.
