Artist's Description

All the procceds from the sale of any of my roses will go to my local hospice in memory of my dear mum …..June

Thank you to my good friend David Roman for the words for my rose…… I thank him from the bottom of my heart…..

I could not believe her happiness when I handed her my present!
All wrapped in a nice light blue box with a clean white ribbon.
I worried over this all week long was this the thing for her.
I looked at so many thing’s in the store it gave my mind a scare!
In every counter was a stone much larger than the other.
They looked so hard and without life I decided not to buy them.
And then I thought about the struggle to get them out the earth.
And all the little fingers digging in the dirt.
I looked at them and all I saw was others getting rich.
It made me stop and think too long about such ugly things!
So I turned my back on a yellow stone I guess that was me too!
But sitting in the closest case was such a fine white pretty thing!
It seemed to be looking up in to my face, with a soft white glow that said hello don’t you remember me?
I couldn’t hear the sales girls chatter my mind was lost to this.
So I stood right there in Tiffany’s with a cold blank stare.
I stuttered as my words came out “may I pppplease see these ppppearls”.
She she looked at me and said “what’s the matter” but I still was in my dream.
And then it came with such a stroke it all was all too clear to me.
My baby was so pure and kind I think this was the point and God took me to this second counter to try to get me hooked.
His guidance was so right I stood there in a trance.
Oh my baby will wear these pearls tonight………to the summer dance!
