Hi Everyone!

I heard a tune the other day and I can’t get it out of my head. Has that ever happened to you? The tune you ask – The Rose by Bette Midler. Close your ears I’m starting to sing The Rose! Hey come on sing with me!

The Rose song by Bette Midler
Some say love it is a riverĀ 
That drowns the tender reedĀ 
Some say love it is a razorĀ 
That leaves your soul to bleed
Some say love it is a hungerĀ 
An endless aching needĀ 
I say love it is a flowerĀ 
And you it’s only seed
It’s the heart afraid of breakingĀ 
That never learns to danceĀ 
It’s the dream afraid of waking that never takes the chanceĀ 
It’s the one who won’t be takenĀ 
Who cannot seem to giveĀ 
And the soul afraid of dying that never learns to live
When the night has been too lonelyĀ 
And the road has been too longĀ 
And you think that love is onlyĀ 
For the lucky and the strongĀ 
Just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snowsĀ 
Lies the seedĀ 
That with the sun’s loveĀ 
In the springĀ 
Becomes the rose

Retired in 2015, lived in Chicago, IL all my life. Love blogging and knitting. I'm sure people think my blogs are - hmm - "bonkers". I've read there are eight (8) type of writers. Closet writer, eternal writer, hestiant writer, innovative writer, inspired writer, literate writer, logical writer, and last but not least savvy writer. Still trying to figure out what I am. I like to use clip art or photos in my blog. Try to relate the clip art and/or photos to what I am writing. Eight (8) writers information found on Thank you for stopping by!

  1. What a great tune! Iā€™ve had worse earworms going around in my head! šŸ˜‚ Interestingly, Iā€™ve got a version where the singer, Dave Willetts, interchanges ā€œThe Roseā€ with Neil Diamondā€™s ā€œHello Againā€ as itā€™s in the same key!
