|Reflections on a Joyful Success|
|Above are sunless clouds presenting a threatening-sky;
Below is a brilliant display of colorful sparkling show-roses.
Anticipation is high awaiting the rose-judges’ verdicts,
while hunger mounts for when the potluck food can be attacked.
Greeting people and sharing past and present rose-experiences
only enriches the total ambiance of fellowship.
The time to depart sadly arrives, and one leaves realizing
the hard work that has taken place to make this event such a joyful success.
