ROSES ARE FOR NOSES - by James Donovan

Roses are for noses, and
I suppose, everyone knows this,
Just a whiff, or a little sniff,
can often induce great bliss.

For one whoís sad,
or feeling bad,
surrounded by much gloom,
To help them cope,
injecting fresh hope,
God sends a fragrant bloom.

Donít get me wrong,
I agree with the throng,
rose blooms are very appealing,
But itís the one with a scent,
when over it youíre bent,
'sends your emotions
through the ceiling.

Sure, "Touch of Class"
is a beautiful lass, and
in fact an exhibitorís dream,
But smell "Mme. Pierre Oger",*
or "Louise Odier",**
and I think youíll
see what I mean.

The roseís beauty,
as if doing its duty,
refreshes one's soul like ointment,
But, I wonít recant, if thereís no perfume extant,
the flower leaves
some disappointment.

ďA Rose, A Rose, A Rose,Ē
someone famous
once said in prose,
But, when allís said and done,
itís the aromatic one,
'proves the rose was made
for the nose.


* pronounced, "Oh-zchay"
** pronounced, "Oh-Dee-Ay"
