A White Rose Analysis

Author: Poetry of John Boyle O'Reilly Type: Poetry Views: 666

Sponsored Links

THE red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.

But I send you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips

While comparing the two different colors of rose, John Boyle O’Reilly also demonstrates the meaning of love. He notices, “And the white rose is a dove”, which also symbolizes that the white rose and the dove have a relation to love and its meaning (O’Reilly 4). This line of the poem represents John Boyle O’Reilly’s love and admiration for innocence or the white rose and dove opposed to the red rose and falcon’s ferocity and fierce nature. In the second stanza, O’Reilly demonstrates that he wants his love to continue to grow by giving his love a rosebud in contrast to a full grown rose. John Boyle O’Reilly recollects his feelings of love and admiration through a rosebud.

This poem uses many archetypes to show his love and affection towards a women White represents innocence, while the red shows the fiercenez.

I think that it is a very good poem to John Boyle about love ,he used a lot of symbol...
i really like the second stanza because it is more meaningful and have a lot of symbols...
I like that he want to send his lover a rosebud not a rose because he want his love to grow every day as the rosebud grow... but i have a question and want some help,i was thinking about if the poet could have made the white rose a symbol of passion and the red rose a symbol of love?and why not?

O\'Reilly indicates so clearly that his red rose is a symbol of physical desire and his white rose a symbol of spiritual attachment that when we get to the metaphor in the third line we unconsciously substitute passion for the red rose in our minds, knowing without thinking that what O\'Reilly is really likening is falcons and passion, not falcons and roses. Similarly, in the second stanza, the symbolism of the white rosebud with pink tips is specifically indicated in the last two lines, although, as a matter of fact, it would have been clear from the first stanza.

This is one of my favorite love poems of classical literature... so full of beautiful metaphors.. I drooled while reading this the first time.. (ok, not really) but it was that awesome... the red rose representing passion and lust... the white rose representing a softer, a more truthful love... I'm not sure about the last few lines, though...

"For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips"

I'm not quite getting this part... does LOVE has a kiss of desire on the lips or does the white rose represent a love that GIVES a kiss of desire on the lips? Whatever the case, I think the writer has done an excellent job within a few, short lines.
