Gardner's Delight -- A Poem for the Month of May

Add Roses Red
Roses Red, you have finally come
Pruned somewhat late that's all our fault
Inconvenience we're sorry
Sorry but not disappointed

Your blossoms so bright fair and Red
Welcome bait for any lass' hair
Bring my love a dozen plus two
She'll reward your valiant display

Summer's near, May's departing fast
Rose food desert early for you
And water each day keep you moist
Garden would seem bare with you gone
You pretty girls so dear to us
Proper kiss but for prickly stems

[this is our back yard, Roses Red are
against the right wall, sisters are at

 [the left corner of the garden, the Louisiana Iris in
the middle here bloomed early, since we did not
have a freeze the orange Hibiscus left in the middle
picture have been blooming since February.]

You have roses already, Jim! We only have honeysuckle at the moment; the blossoms have all been blown away by wind and rain, and roses are still to come.

I like that you call the roses "girls".

I absolutely adore roses and the fact that you have addressed them in this poem.❤️ Especially like; "Bring my love a dozen plus two
She'll reward your valiant display." Thank you so much for writing to the prompt.

I love the last line of the first stanza - "sorry but not disappointed".
