Love's fragrant spirit haunts the velvet rose
A specter of passion, unseen yet felt
Petals unfurling, secrets they disclose
Of yearning that can never be dispelled
Ethereal essence, a soulful refrain
Whispering through each delicate fold
Echoing the heartbeats of joy and pain
Mysteries only the ardent behold
Translucent dew glistens with love's tear
As dawn's first blush paints the bloom aglow
The phantom lingers, ever-present, near
Reminding that from love, all beauties flow
Until the last petal's graceful descent
Love's immortal wraith keeps its reverent
Within the rose's heart, forever blent
