Rosebud: A Poetry Collection by Nick Jameson is, as the title says, a collection of poems, but not just any poems. Rosebud is filled with every type of emotion anyone might feel at any point in their lives. It is overflowing with reflections, metaphors, lessons, and stories of life in itself. Apart from beautiful poetry, this collection is characterized by a vocabulary that is not as popular as it used to be. It is a nice reminder of how much more romantic and deep language can be. Words are an incredible outlet for feelings, dreams, thoughts, and even aspirations. Rosebud does this at every turn of the page. This is one of those books which have a timeless feel to it. Every poem can mean something new each year that passes by; there is much to learn from life, and having a book with reflections such as these is needed.

After reading Rosebud, I was left with a feeling of deep appreciation yet complete envy; to be able to write like Nick Jameson would be a gift. I found my feelings being expressed by someone else’s words. The rhymes were perfect; they made sense and were fun to read. There is always something innocent and childlike about rhymes, but with the author's meanings behind those words, that innocence disappeared. After reading some of these poems, I felt as if I needed to run in the countryside and smile at life, to be free, to be myself. “The modern contagion: nature deprivation.” This small sentence means so much to me; there is something about nature that cannot be found anywhere else. I hold what I have learned while reading Rosebud very close to my heart.
