June Muse Day

“June Muse Day”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana

Shelia's Rose Bud (redu)

A Little Budding Rose
by Emily Bronte
It was a little budding rose,
Round like a fairy globe,
And shyly did its leaves unclose
Hid in their mossy robe,
But sweet was the slight and spicy smell
It breathed from its heart invisible.

      Thanks for stopping by, Anna. I just found this poem myself a few days ago and thought it would go well with my little rosebud picture.

    I didn’t know Emily Bronte wrote poetry. I thought she only wrote novels. You learn something new everyday, huh?

      Sandy, most writers of that time did both novels and poetry. The Bronte sisters were very creative women.

    That was nice! Indeed, roses seem to have invisible hearts.

    The poem and your pink rose bud go along perfectly with each other. Very nice.

      Thanks, Donna. It was lucky that I found the poem to go with that pretty little rosebud.
