This poem was sent to me as an e-mail greeting from a friend. The sentiment was so heartfelt that I decided to convert the message into an on-line floral cheer. Here, with more than a dozen roses, is a way to enjoy the on-line flowers and share in the joy of "giving them away." After reading this page, pass on this poem to another who may need it and brighten up someone else's day. Remember the Chinese Proverb that 
    One joy scatters a hundred griefs.

I got a dozen roses 
From a friend the other day: 
But I only have one left, 
For I gave them all away. 

I gave one to my sister, 
Who to me is very dear, 
In hopes that it will bring to her 
A little floral cheer. 

I took one to a friend 
Who's not feeling very well: 
The flower or the visit 
Which helped more I could not tell. 

One went to a friend 
I haven't known for very long. 
She struggles, so in some small way 
I hope this helps her carry on. 

The rest went to the ones 
Who've helped me in so many ways; 
They have been a cheerful presence 
On my very dreary days. 

The Roses were so pretty 
I just could not keep them all, 
Except one single bud  
Standing beautiful and tall. 

My friend gave me the flowers  
To help brighten up my day, 
But the biggest joy I received 
Was in giving them away. 

Nothing warms the heart like a smile!
Please share this page of Flowers with a friend 
and Have a Wonderful Day!
