Dorothy Parker is one of my all time favourite poets and this, One Perfect Rose, is one of my favourite poems. The way in which the poem sets up the beauty of the rose and the love held within it, is offset by the ponderings of the limousine, which makes the poem a beautifully bitter-sweet one. The offhand almost blasé way in which Dorothy writes is both refreshing and humourous. I would highly recommended anyone to find and devour any of her work!
With that I wish you a Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you have a lovely day filled with lovely love and don’t forget the 15th of February is Cheap Flower Day! So get out there and buy some drastically reduced flowers!
