Just As Dianne Says

I have cut
the roses
that were magnificent
on the bush

and which now
will never know
the love
of a bee

Forgive me
they are beautiful
so luscious
in my kitchen

Hi Mollie, Barbara's sister-in-law stopping by to read the latest... I love your "Just as ___ says" poems. I used to use the original (This is just to say) with my students and it drove them nuts because they thought it was way too simple to qualify as poetry!
