For My Darling Mickeybear

The mountain laurel blossoms -- also known as rhododendron -- are some of the most beautiful flowers you'll find in the East Tennessee mountains. My darling Mickeybear, these -- and my little lento -- are especially for you. *purrrrrr*


Shower of petals, lush and white
Bower of blossoms like my heart true
Power of love, warmth of joy:
Flowers need sunshine; I need you.

Oh Marilyn,
This is the most beautiful lento. You are so very talented. Your mom should take lessons from you!
And the picture of you with the rhododendron makes my heart swell with love!
You are a most beautiful Whitester!
Love--Mickey

Aww, that's a sweet pose and poem. It's sad when all the mountain laurels quit blooming. Our rhododendrons here are so pretty for one month, then they start to go.

I missed this post, I'm falling behind, with visiting my friends. I quess it's because Mamma Beans come first.
