    Pose (of roses)

    Hello everybody,

    I know "poses of roses" from:

    "Moses supposes his toeses are roses,
    but Moses supposes erroneously.
    For nobody's toeses are poses of roses
    as Moses supposes his toeses to be."

    and I know it is some sort of a bouquet, but I can't seem to find any relevant entry of "pose" in my Harrap's or in online dictionaries.

    Can anyone help me on that one ? There is no hurry, since I am just being curious there... but I'm curious

    The word you should be looking for is 'posy' (plural 'posies').

    And "toesies".
