Liefste Tannie, ons bring rosies, rosies blink met môredou.

Liefste Tannie, ons bring rosies, rosies blink met môredou;

mooie kleurtjies, soete geurtjies, en dis alles net vir jou;
Rosies fluister: “Liefde, soentjies”, in verbloemde blommetaal;
rosies fluister: “Liefde, soentjies”, in verbloemde blommetaal.

Rosies wat ons uit ons tuintjie, liefde uit ons hartjies haal.
Rosies wat ons uit ons tuintjie, liefde uit ons hartjies haal.
Maar die soentjies … in geen mandjie; nêrens in wil dit geluk.
Liefste Tannie, ons is raadop: soentjies moet jy self maar pluk!
Liefste Tannie, ons is raadop: soentjies moet jy self maar pluk!

A word a week Challenge : LOVE

RED ROSES FOR A BLUE LADY
Dean Martin

I want some red roses for a blue lady
Mister florist take my order please
We had a silly quarrel the other day
I hope these pretty flowers chase her blues away

I want some red roses for a blue lady
Send them to the sweetest gal in town
And if they do the trick, I’ll hurry back to pick
Your best white orchid for her wedding gown

(I want some red roses for a blue lady)

We had a silly quarrel the other day
I hope these pretty flowers chase her blues away

I want some red roses for a blue, blue lady
Send them to the sweetest gal in town
And if they do the trick, I’ll hurry back to pick
Your best white orchid for her wedding gown

Your best white orchid for her wedding gown

I took these photos this morning

Red roses  for love!

Once a week I will dip into my old English Oxford dictionary and pick a word on the page that it falls open at.  The challenge is to post a photograph, poem, story – whatever the genre you like best to describe of what that word means to you.

It would be nice if you could  link back to my challenge page so others can take part if they wish.

I’m lovin the posts of bloggers who pick up the gauntlet and because they are so good and many have put so much effort into them I am also going to reblog one or two other particpants entries a week to share with you all.   I’vee been missing some posts so it would be really helpful if you could add a tag called  ‘a word a week challenge’ so I can read and share with my community.
