a rose

from my family photo collection: Mamaw, Aunt Ruth, and Mama Gene

The Rose Family

by Robert Frost

The rose is a rose,
And was always a rose.
But the theory now goes
That the apple's a rose,
And the pear is, and so's
The plum, I suppose.
The dear only know
What will next prove a rose.
You, of course, are a rose -
But were always a rose.

I'm off to Arkansas tomorrow for another lovely visit with Mamaw.
