Ode to The Red Rose. A Dedication to CrisSp.

The Charm and Elegance of The Rose

Charisma and Panache

Source

O symbol of supernal beauty, Come!

Kiss our Heart-flames with your shimmering Light;

Touch every Soul with your rhapsody unparallel.


I feel your sweet scent; your garb of golden Light,

As your glowering warmth,

Enters the dark night, of each passing sorrow.


Come! Let us sing praises to the One,

In whose glory you now bask,

As you caress with Love,

The endless energy of each emotion.


I know that our Lord has given you,

The boon of quintessential charm.

So as to awaken in others,

A sparkling promise of a luminous tomorrow.


Fresh, fragrant; filled with elegance and excellence,

May you garlands continue to shine on the Spirit,

Soothing and adorning its lost splendour, and

Creating a beautiful radiance, in each yearning Soul.


-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. ┬ęCopyrighted, 25th June, 2015.

A beautiful dedication to such a wonderful and special young lady. Magnetite, your impressions and expressions get better every day. Of course, that's a most beautiful song! God bless!

Uh oh, looks like the word adjustment/function took over and changed the spelling of Manatita somehow (in my previous comment) but we all know who you are :-)

Thanks Jodah.

We really needed a theme of Sweetness and Joy. I'm sure that you will agree. Thank you for appreciating the beauty in this poem. Much Peace.

Chuckle, chuckle, my Brother Word55. I wonder whose it is? (smile). Your selfless is supreme and noted. I will cherish this video for a long time. Higher blessings.

Hi Whonu,

Greetings! I feel good today. So wonderful to see all you loving guys. Now I just need a lady. Aren't the roses meant for them also? :) In Love and Light.

What a beautiful and appropriate tribute to Cris!

Kudos to Word55 for putting music to your poetry. I've been looking for someone to do that for one of mine: Listen to Me, For the Earth I Plea.

Again, you have captured the essence of God's beauty in the rose. You are a master wordsmith, always finding the exact expressions to share the glory from above. Be confident in your God-given talent knowing that it is He who placed this unique plan and purpose in your hand. Let your light so shine before men that Our God might be glorified through you. Be blessed.

Hey Bill, you stole my words! (chuckle, chuckle ..)

Thanks Bro, yes, she's real cool! Enjoy. Gratitude ..much

Shauna, Al is looking for people like you. He may charge, though. Send me the link and I'll have a read. My song can be sung in churches, so if you're interested, you can see Al, also.

What can I say in respect to your loving contributions here? You never dissapoint me. God bless you this loving Sunday.

Vasantha, yes,

The Soul of The Rose. A real coup, there. I just stumbled upon it in my searches. Truly worthy and sublime. Thank you; thank you. Hope that all's good. have a great Sunday.

Yes, my Sweet Ruby,

Thought so myself. Perhaps we can combine. Next time we'll write one together. What do you say? We are both fun-loving. Joking, of course, but you know it's not a bad idea. Think of something or someone to praise or adore. Not Me! he he he ..... much Love this Sunday.

P.S. When you're not too busy, check out the video. It is three and a half minutes of my poem and Al's music and singing.

Thank You, Doris. Thank you, thank you ...

I know of your busy life but let still say that it is always a joy and a pleasure to have you here. Yes, I really liked that one. Did it three days ago and three more as well. May post another later. I was really inspired.

The Hubber Vasantha commented on the Soul of The Rose. Sublime, eh? Infinite gratitude to you for recognising my gift and sincerity. Means the world to me. My Prayers are always with you, Monica and the other members of the family. Go in God's Peace.

Oh my goodness! I am speechless yet flattered! :) You are amazing and I couldn't thank you enough for this beautiful words and for your kind heart.

This is indeed beyond any lottery price. Just like what billybuc said in his latest hub, he's never been around the world but he's got friends all over. And, for that, I am richer than I think!

Thank you so much for the way you spread love and light manatita44 and for word55 for sharing his gift of music with us.

Of course, you have my votes here and absolutely sharing and pinning.

Love and twinkle to you from the sky~

I feel honoured that you have graced my page with such splendid comments, CrisSp. You and I, we are like the tree and its branches. I offer my fruits, and you reciprocate by being in the adornment of the branches. We need each other. I wish to fly up to the sky and bring you down. (smile) Much Love.

My Sweet CrisSp,

I was thinking that I'd like to visit you again, but you came straight to my mind when I read the words of your last line.

Deb is a beautiful Spirit, and a real friend of mines, so I am happy that you are friends, too. I pray for the Master's continued Light and Protection in your life. Have a blessed weekend.

I had to read this ode and listen to the words of the song again today! What a splendid tribute to CrisSp. She must be on a hiatus from HP during these holidays. God bless her.


manatita44 profile image

manatita44 9 months ago from london Author

Yes, Bro.

She's been here, but yes. She is busy in the air a lot. Nature of the job. I thought that she also had a new place, I believe. Must be decorating. Only a guess, Bro. This is a beautiful Ode to a beautiful person and lovely people here. Full of Light. Yes, the video is awesome. Much Love, my brother.

Note: If you have connections, you can go far with this song.

CrisSp,

He he! Great to know that you are well, my Dear Friend. Be careful. Watch how much you do. Chuckle. I'm sure that Al will want to send his Love, as I do mines. Happy New Year!
