The “Rose” symbolizes a myriad of emotions. It’s in the lover’s hand as he tries to woo his beloved. A wilted rose hidden amongst the pages of a book brings to a young maiden all the memories of her sweetheart. A rose becomes a style statement when pinned to the buttonhole of a coat. It fills the house with its sweet aroma when a bunch of roses decorates a flower vase. It arouses romantic notions as it fills the air with its sweet smell. It adorns a bride’s hand as she walks down the aisle. It also lies still on a coffin as a mark of respect to the dead.
