A Blue Rose Song and Story
From A Song To Deliver
Artwork by Gail Bradshaw
Lyrics A blue rose Coloured skin Red sky A pearl pin It took a laugh to get me in. The door swung open, Let love begin. But you know the heart Is a secret place, Distant, dark, So hard to trace. But you threw a spark, With your embrace, And the morning light Is shining in your face. Who sent this stranger, Who could speak my name? Who laughed at the danger, In dancing in the woods, When the moon is full, And the bear cubs are purring, With the whippoorwill? Night falls, Curtains close, It's the silent time The lonely heart knows. Walk the halls, Wind the clock, The nightbird calls, The door is locked. A cold walk, On a barren field, Some plain talk, Would improve the yield. It's time to leave This war behind, The shattered hearts, The destroyed minds. Who sent this stranger, Who knew my song? Who loves the danger, In singing to the moon, When the wind is high, The cougars dance, And the ravens sigh? I'm the lonely faller, Dust inside my collar, Mushrooms on my boots. It was hidden in my heart, Right from the start, How not to trip on the roots. Just sing: Be bop a diddly bop Dance 'til your heart stops, Sing it from the tree top, She's sweeter than a lemon drop. Be bop a diddly bop, Avoid that flip flop, Cross over the river, Got a song to deliver. Alright. A blue rose Coloured skin Red sky Pearl pin It took a laugh to get me in. The door swung open, Let love begin. The door swung open, Let love begin. The door swung open, Let love, Let love begin. Story
Of the many thousands of roses, not one is blue.
There are numerous myths and tales about a blue rose, and here is one:
Once upon a time, in early June, as the days lengthened, the nights were warm, and the roses bloomed, a King said to his daughter:
"You will soon be married.
You may make of your suitors one request."
His daughter replied, “Sure, Pops!
I will marry the man who brings me a blue rose.”
Posts were made on social media, a herd of sign bearing rabbits was scattered to arouse interest among the gentlemen of the land.
First to present himself was a wealthy IT investor, he had gotten out before the CISCO crash.
Paid a Brooklyn florist to paint a red rose blue and ship it to him express.
Unfortunately for Mister IT, the florist used the wrong paint, the blue dripped onto the daughter’s hand, and the suitor was rejected.
Next, a famous actor , who looked as if he had snorted brown sand while crashing his Ferrari into a post, had a rose carved from sapphire, but it was hard and cold, and he was dismissed.
Then a sneaky man who had made his fortune in cryptocracy and cryptocurrency had his brother, a magician, create the illusion of a blue rose in an ornate box, a hologram, but when the girl reached for it, her hand passed through the image, the battery died, and she angrily rejected the suitor as dishonest and incompetent.
While walking in the garden that night, the unhappy girl encountered the young man she had always loved, the son of the palace gardener, and she told him of her Father’s plan to have her marry.
The next day, the young man, showered, shaved, and smiling, arrived at the palace gate with a beautiful white rose, the deeply scented Bourbon, Boule de Neige.
He presented it to the Princess.
Inhaling the glorious perfume she said:
"This is the most beautiful blue rose I have ever seen."
Her Father said:
‘If she says it is so, it is so!
You shall marry!
You have my blessing.
Take the Lambourghini!"
