A White Rose
By John Boyle O’Reilly (1844–1890)
 
THE RED rose whispers of passion,
  And the white rose breathes of love;
Oh, the red rose is a falcon
  And the white rose is a dove.
 
But I send you a cream-white rosebud        5
  With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
  Has a kiss of desire on the lips.
