Why a Rose

My friend, is the Rose not just another flower
Why and what is a rose presented
Albeit be it that the bloom is scented
And its perfect form by nature invented
The recipient euphoric and contented

Colour and hue has many a meaning
Red an expression of love and feeling
White for purity a new beginning
Orange emblazoning a passionate leaning
Green and white harmony and healing

Month by month a birthday allocation
Carnation for January February gets a Violet
March a Daffodil, a Daisy in April a Lily in May
A Rose in June, Delphinium for July
Another verse required to please your eye

Dahlia in August Aster for September
Calendula for October please remember
November is a Chrysanthemum
December Poinsettia or some Holly
Hang some Mistletoe and make it jolly

The pressure of the social norm
Can one not your own opinion form
With such variety of floral choice
Let not society still your voice
Make your own decision and rejoice

But after all will an Aster or simple Pansy not do
Gardenias, Irises, Lobelia or a Lotus
Orchids, Tulips, Zinnias and Sweet William
Snowdrops, Gladiolus, even a Cosmos for attention
So my friend, any flower presented a well meant intention
