This one goes out to the one I love–my wife

To my Dearest wife Dolly—

ONE RED ROSE

How do I tell thee I love thee

As sure as the winsome wind blows;

I know, I'll give to you now—-

—This solitary Red Rose.

This Rose, the Queen among flowers

Denotes what Royalty you are;

A sweet symbol of my undying love

——One solo Red Rose.

Words fail to paint the picture

Of my cherished love for you that grows;

So here, my dear, I give thee cheer

—–One Red Valentine Rose.
