Review: Lovely is the Rose

"Lovely is the Rose, A Scented Anthology
by Celia Haddon

96 pages

I think this is a lovely book, there are pictures of paintings of roses and other flowers arranged artfully throughout the book. The vibrant and beautiful pictures are so lovely that often I caught myself trying to smell the pages.
There are poems in the book with the theme of roses, written by: Thomas Carew, John Keats, Isaac Watts, John Gay, Emily Dickinson, John Gerard, George Eliot, Robert Burns, William Cowper, Alfred Lord Tennyson, William Blake, Christian Rossetti, and others.
