My Lover Gave Me Roses

Home Main Submit Contents Recipes

Here's a poem I wrote as a jazz chant to help my students practice "r" and "l".

My lover gave me roses
To tell me that he loved me

He gave me yellow roses
To celebrate my birthday

And lovely white roses
Whenever I was sad

And soft pink roses
Whenever I was mad

But when I see a red rose
I always want to cry

Because he gave me red roses
On the day he said goodbye.
