ROSES, their sharp spines being gone,
Not royal in their smells alone,
   But in their hue;
Maiden pinks, of odour faint,

A blessing poem to the wedding couple....excellent style of presentation...I like the most the way flowers and birds are used for this poem- -great work
This poem is a kind of an interment song, written four stanzas of six lines each. Shakespeare invites all the good within everything available in nature such as a rose flower into the bridal home to bless the bride and her bridegroom.
