Yellow Rose Day

When Polly first posted that she was having a contest about yellow roses I told her I couldn't participate ....but wanted to.... because I didn't have a single yellow rose in my house. Then I remembered the yellow climbing rose we have. It's sort of in a hidden place so I tend to forget about it. So anyway...Polly and Michelle here's my yellow rose post and poem. No laughing! :)) Amendment: Yes, I wrote the poem, that's why I said "No laughing". Miles of Smiles ~ Lynn


The Last Gift of Summer

She clings to the thorny green vine
As if to say _ summer's still mine
A bright yellow glow on a cloudy Fall day
To remind us of the glories of a bright Spring May

Oh Lynn! That is just beautiful! Pink and Yellow are my two favorite colors of a rose. Yours is so beautiful, I could cry. I dont want summer to be over!!!! Spring and summer are my favorite seasons. And it always feels like winter will never end.

Hugs,
Amy

It's beautiful! Your poem and your rose. It's amazing that each of us seems to have been given the gift of a yellow rose tucked away somewhere and forgetten until this week! Blessings... Polly

I have just bid farwell to my last yellow rose of the season. If you look at my post you will see its petals in a little white dish sitting on the mirror.
I love your poem and your picture, no laughter, just smiles.
