Attar Of Roses (Sonnet) - Poem by Valerie Dohren

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

    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!

    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. (Report) Reply
