Countdown, Day 7: Es Ist Ein Ros



 
Lo, how a Rose e'er blooming
from tender stem hath sprung!
Of Jesse's lineage coming,
as those of old have sung.
It came, a floweret bright,
amid the cold of winter
when half spent was the night.

Hello Becky
Nice pictures you show.
I love roses - and dry them also like.
Wish you a good weekend :)
