The orange rose, which sits proudly by the pear tree,
When I see it, I am taken back to my youth,
the smell reminds me of good times past,
many things have changed in my life,
many things have changed in that garden,
the orange rose is my link to that land that is the past.

Every Wednesday, we feature a poem and a picture about our neighbourhood. If you have a poem and a picture you'd like to feature, just email to me using the link in the sidebar. I've written poetry for many years, for my own amusement. It was suggested that I share some of it. I hope you enjoy it, I'd love to feature anything you have written.
