The Yellow Rose of Roger Williams. Photography and Text by Keith R Wahl
Greetings of cheer and friendship
Select Image or Title to See in a Larger Format
Simple and serene, the cheerful yellow rose represents friendship. The story goes that when Roger Williams arrived in the site that became Providence, RI in 1636, the Narragansett Native Americans greeted him with, "What cheer, Netop!" "Netop" being the native word for "friend". What more needs saying? It is only fitting that we find this rose in Roger Williams' namesake park as his statue overlooks the scene. Would it be that we greet each other in the same manner on this day?
