Secret Word Game

News Flash! We have a WINNER!

The Winner is pikepss! And the word is “rosebud”. The winning post was written on June 16. Congratulations, pikepss! You’ve won again. Good for you—your birthday month should be filled with presents & prizes!

When I chose “rosebud” instead of “rose”, I thought it might be tough. But pikepss just threw down both words without blinking an eye! I noticed a little trivia: in both May and June the word ‘London’ is in both titles of pikepss’s winning articles. Hip hip hurrah!

The June birth flower is the rose. June is sometimes called the “Rose month.” Named after Juno (Hera), the goddess of marriage, June is a popular month to be married. David, don’t do it!

So let’s have an English national song that is about marriage and youth:

Gather ye rosebuds

by Robert Herrick

Gather ye rose-buds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying:
And this same flower that smiles to-day,
To-morrow will be dying.

The glorious Lamp of Heaven, the Sun,
The higher he’s a-getting
The sooner will his race be run,
And nearer he’s to setting.

That age is best which is the first,
When youth and blood are warmer:
But being spent, the worse, and worst
Times, still succeed the former.

Then, be not coy, but use your time;
And while ye may, go marry:
For having lost but once your prime,
You may for ever tarry.
