Rose of Romance

Kevin Michael Bloor

I’d waited and wandered,
and time I had squandered
in search of my bonnie, wee lass.

Through seasons of sorrows
and tragic tomorrows
my missing her just wouldn’t pass.

I felt it worth waiting,
with breath held and bating
for girl with a face, oh, so fair.

For she was my first love,
my one only true love,
my rose of romance, oh, so rare!

    Dear Kevin,

    I love your poem(s) dedicated to your
    ‘bonnie wee lass, Lorraine’.
    It has been worthwhile and a blessing for you to wait and finally be with your first love.❤️

    Perhaps love does conquer all.

    Beautiful wee poem Kev. You're a lucky man

  • L. B. Mek

    I think Burns, himself
    would cherish the worded devotion
    in this poem
    what a fantastic, song
    to serenade your Lorraine with..
    and I can't help, comparing your lines
    favourably to his
    in that triumphant, 'red red rose':
    'So fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
    So deep in luve am I;
    And I will luve thee still, my dear,
    Till a’ the seas gang dry.

    Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear,
    And the rocks melt wi’ the sun;
    I will love thee still, my dear,
    While the sands o’ life shall run.'
    (may your life's cups
    be ever filled with each others, kindness
    stay blessed, dear poet)
