In Red, White, and Pink

In Red, White, and Pink
Form: Raven’s Rovi Sonnet 26
Theme: Love
Subject: A rose

As symbol of love dressed in vibrant red
Of passion fuelled by an intimate lust
Expressed in the words that the poets said
Combined with purity of silken white
Like sweet innocence flushed delicate pink
Inspired, the poet to sits down to write
Inspired by beauty that flows in his ink
And in his words he lays down his heart’s trust
In words of desire forming in his head
For like the rose, she is his sweet delight
His love can be revealed in ink or rose
But she says nothing so his heart will sink
Unrequited love unseen in the rose
Love given for the nothing, I suppose
