The Roses' Oath
Please say your heart's forever mine!
The roses' beauty makes an oath,
desire or love and sometimes both.
An open yellow questions growth
of loyalty and loves' sweet wine.
The roses' beauty makes an oath
Please say your heart's forever mine.

For one who loves (because I am lazy, I'm sure) free-verse this "Triolet" was a challenge for me and my very first quick attempt. The pattern is described in One Stop Poetry's "One Stop Poetry Form" which is featured every Monday. Please click on the sight to learn the counting (stresses) and rhyming structure. (btw.. Ginnie! ... are my apostrophes correct? Grammar police, help! :)
I'm also submitting the above poem to "The March Challenge". The prompt is: nature.
The following close up is for "Macro Monday". Can you smell the roses today? :)
