Rose Petal Rain


I wish the sky would rain down roses, as they rain
From off the shaken bush.  Why will it not?
Then all the valley would be pink and white
And soft to tread on.  They would fall as light
As feathers, smelling sweet;  And it would be
Like sleeping and like waking, all at once!





























From the poem: Roses    By: George Eliot

    1. Thank you Nadezda, this is just a simple wild rose bush, the only rose I have in my garden, but it makes the most beautifully coloured flowers all summer long :)
