A Congress of Roses

A Poem By The Brit // 4/9/2009

In summer dawn of dewy gold,
Comes a meeting of the roses.
For the gathering that they hold
Of the meeting of the roses,
Of white and pink and scarlet bold.
For the meeting of the roses.
In the pink air of the morning cold,
For the congress of the roses.

And the sun shines on webs of dew,
And the meeting of the roses.
On the place where the flowers grew
‘Round the meeting of the roses.
On the stream where the living wander to,
So the meeting of the roses.
The place allowed to only few,
That, the congress of the roses.

What they do and what they say,
In the meeting of the roses,
Is knowledge for only they,
In the meeting of the roses.
It could be secrets, it could, it may.
In the meeting of the roses.
Secrets said in the early day,
By the congress of the roses.

Though quiet looks this scene we see,
The meeting of the roses,
Beneath the silence voices be,
Of the meeting of the roses.
They raise in joy and ecstasy
As the meeting of the roses,
And take their trials joyfully
As the congress of the roses.

In each little garden or hidden glen
Lives a meeting of the roses,
So look in the early morning when
There’s a meeting of the roses.
And see if you hear them singing then,
At the meeting of the roses.
For they stir in the hearts of men
As the Congress of the Roses.

So pretty, 'Brit'! The repititiveness of it gave it a Lady of Shalot feel. I love anything golden, rosy, and dewy!!
