The Last Rose of Asheville's Summer------(Sweet Rosie Sinead)

 

the last rose of Asheville summer

 

 

Sweet Rosie Sinead 

 

Old as the Carolina hills

but agile still,

she melts, without a sound,

into her baby blue plumpity chair,

her beloved perch-by-the-window where

 

most days she  settles in

to watch the children and the zephyrs play,

to live a verse or two

 of her life as 

"the last leaf on the tree"... .

 

Yet, in this very moment,
                she is not alone, she sees!

 

To her amazement,

a visitor, unknown,
               has dropped by,

like the ghost of August,

               has "set -a-spell"
               has cut the last rose of Asheville’s Summer
               has placed it well
               upon his side table,

 

(that hand-carved treasure

her husband made.)

 

Atop the  Old Man’s well-worn Works of Shelley,

just now she spies that single yellow rose, that scent, that smell
               that promise of Forever Love that  to her he gave

singing, "Oh My Sweet Rosie-Sinead."

 

               Remembering it all,
               she hums along.
               In these last hours, November calls,
               and soon will come the white and wintry weather 
               for which they 'll watch and wait together....

 

as leaves fall.

and mysteries rise.
