Kentucky Color: Yellow Rose

Yellow Rose

As a mid-November sun
Washes warmly o're my soul,
My heart is flooded by,
Simple and moving beauty
In a single,
Yellow Rose.

I'm oft times moved by,
Shallow, meaningless things.
But not today I say,
For beauty can never,
Shallow be.

- Billy Joe Fudge 13 Nov 2015

The simple single, juvenile rose in early November 2015, inspired a winter-brightening poem by its simple and moving beauty. - Billy Joe Fudge
