Poems for Valentine's day


The red rose whispers of passion

A famous love poem by the 19th century Irish-American writer John Boyle O'Reilly (1844-1890).



The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.
But I send you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips.
