Under The Summer Roses

Rosa 'William Morris' 
Photobucket
Under the summer roses 
When the flagrant crimson
Photobucket  
Lurks in the dusk
Of the wild red leaves,
Photobucket 
Love, with little hands,
Photobucket 
Comes and touches you
Photobucket 
With a thousand memories, 
Photobucket
And asks you
Beautiful, unanswerable questions.
 
-- Carl Sandburg

    1. sharon I added a list of names at the bottom of the post. I had them with the photos originally, but it seemed to interfere with the poem so I took them out. Putting them at the end was my compromise.
