Beau roses - Des yeux qui font baisser les miens

 Roses !
Des yeux qui font baisser les miens
Un rire qui se perd sur sa bouche
Voilà le portrait sans retouche
De l'homme auquel j'appartiens
The red-petalled beautiful flower  is a timeless symbol of romance and everlasting love, and its beauty has captivated the hearts of many songwriters and lyricists.
"La Vie en rose"  is the signature song of popular French singer Édith Piaf, written in 1945, and released as a single in 1947. The song became very popular in the US in 1950, when seven versions reached the Billboard charts.  
The song's title can be translated as "Life in happy hues", "Life seen through rose-colored glasses", or "Life in rosy hues"; its literal meaning is "Life in Pink."
English translation of the lines above in French would be :
A gaze that make me lower my own
A laugh that is lost on his lips -
That is the un-retouched portrait
Of the man to whom I belong

Beautiful twin roses pictured in my terrace
With regards – S. Sampathkumar
