A Love Poem Found in the Attic

A dried rose

marks the place

in her poem book

where underlined

verses were once

read aloud

by a lover

no one knew

her secret then

only the rose

he gave her

one sweet day in spring

the rose was once deep crimson

before it became imprisoned

the verses spoke of an infinite love

of a passion so intense,

as immense as the sea

and blue as the sky above

and now on another

beautiful day in spring

roses bloom to remind her

only a memory survives.
