Attar of Roses (Sonnet)

I am the perfume full caught by the breeze
The fragrance that drifts through the air -
Attar of Roses soft borne on the wind
With Night-scented Stock lingering there

Essence of Jasmine and sweet Columbine
Is cast all around as I breathe -
Honeyed Gardenia and scented Sweet Pea
Yet soothing all hearts that do grieve

I am the treasure your senses desire
The perfume in floral displays
Carried above as pure redolent air -
The fragrance in bridal bouquets

I dwell in fair gardens bringing delight
To lighten all hearts each day and each night

    A delightful poem that is full of sweet fragrances just
    like the flowers that bloom and send forth their delightful

    A lovely poem Val. I adore the smell of night scented stock, I grow it most years.

  • Hazel Durham (5/1/2013 6:42:00 AM)

    The colourful abundance of flowers, so delicate and yet so powerful with their prescence and leaving a trail of unforgettable scents, that create such beautiful memories that last forever!
    Beautiful write!

    Wow, makes me think of the time I recently spent in Keukenhof in Holland.
    The scent and fantastic colours of so many flowers softening any mood.
    Spring time is fantastic. I had not been back in Europe for many years at this time of the year
    (early spring) . The adorable colour of the fresh green leaves on the trees made it all look like perfect.
    Excellent poem, Val.

    A well spun sonnet spayed over with sensuous scent of choicest flowers.
