    The scent of succulentRosewater, is in the air.

    It smells like,
    the morning mist.
    Like the sweetest candle,
    or,
    the sweetest breath.

    It brings,
    chills to my neck.

    I smile gleefully,
    as the aroma surrounds me.

    And,
    finally,
    I am happy.

    Walaikum Assalaam

    Thank you for choosing such a lovely 'word' for this months competition. I love Roses, they are pure, beautiful and admirable. A lot said about roses but the following 'Sonnet' is one of my favorite 'peace of writing', please read it carefully with NOTES, you will enjoy reading

    SONNET

    O how much more doth beauty beauteous seem,
    By that sweet ornament which truth doth give!
    The rose looks fair, but fairer we it deem
    For that sweet odour which doth in it live.
    The canker-blooms have full as deep a dye
    As the perfumed tincture of the roses,
    Hang on such thorns and play as wantonly
    When summer's breath their masked buds discloses:
    But, for their virtue only is their show,
    They live unwoo'd and unrespected fade,
    Die to themselves. Sweet roses do not so;
    Of their sweet deaths are sweetest odours made:
    And so of you, beauteous and lovely youth,
    When that shall fade, my verse distills your truth.

    NOTES

    LIV. This Sonnet continues and expands the sentiment of liii. 14. Beauty is made more beautiful by inward worth. The beauty of the rose is thus enhanced by its sweet odour from within. In this it excels the "canker-blooms," which no one prizes either when they are alive or after they have faded. But roses, fading and dying, yield sweet perfumes. And so, when the beauty of Mr. W. H. passes away, his truth and fidelity will be preserved, "distilled" in the poet's verse.

    8. The canker-blooms have full as deep a dye. If, as seems to be the case, the "canker-bloom" is the dog-rose, then, as Steevens remarks, there is an inconsistency in the statement of the text, since the dog-rose is of a pale colour, and, moreover, is not entirely without odour.

    6. Perfumed tincture of the roses. The roses, with their perfume and colour. "Tincture" is equivalent to the "dye" of the previous line.

    11. Die to themselves. The "canker-blooms" die neglected and unregarded.

    14. Vade. So Q. Dowden, adopting this form, refers to Passionate Pilgrim, x. i, "Sweet rose, fair flower, untimely pluck'd, soon vaded."


    PS: SONNET = A poem of fourteen lines using any of a number of formal rhyme schemes, in English typically having ten syllables per line.
