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

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.Delete
