  • Valentine's Day Poetry Contest Winning Poem: Grades 5-6Tara Lentell, Grade 6, Barstow School, KCMOOde to RosesOhhh! Roses, you are incomparable!Your sweet smell wafts through the air.I lift you to my nose, and it’s like I’m in heaven.The best gift of all to get on Valentine’s Day.Chocolates are fine, but without you Valentine’s would be nothing.On Valentine’s Day, I am presented with a rose, and I am blushing.Your perfect petals are a brilliant red, dazzling in the sunlight.Your petals have crisp edges, making your fine details stand out more beautifully.You are so fine I can’t help but stare.Even with thorns, you are the most delicate thing on the Earth.To me, more than a million is what you’re worth.I have four roses, but that’s not enough. I need more than eleven.I look around my house, and I see you every which way.You are beautiful all the time, sunrise to twilight.You are finer than any jewelry.I could have acres of you, and never have enough.I wish you would never wilt or fade.You seem so gentle while many plants seem rough.Ever since I found you, my love for you has never swayed.Roses, you are small and cute, yet strong and commanding.Nothing could hold a candle to you – you are outstanding!Ohhh! Roses, how I love you!#KCParks #roses #ValentinesDay #KCRoseSociety
