I'm a new member and have successfully added 2 roses to my Watch List, but when I tried to add more, nothing happens (the listing of the rose only refreshes with a different photo of the rose; the button for add to watch list remains the same, and nothing shows up on the watch list of my account) I am logged in. I have restarted my computer and cleared browser cache. Does watch list have a limit on free and new accounts?

Also well-known among poetry lovers familiar with D.H. Lawrence's poem "Gloire de Dijon".

Gloire de Dijon
~ by D. H. Lawrence (1885–1930)

When she rises in the morning
I linger to watch her;
She spreads the bath-cloth underneath the window
And the sunbeams catch her
Glistening white on the shoulders,
While down her sides the mellow
Golden shadow glows as
She stoops to the sponge, and her swung breasts
Sway like full-blown yellow
Gloire de Dijon roses.

She drips herself with water, and her shoulders
Glisten as silver, they crumple up
Like wet and falling roses, and I listen
For the sluicing of their rain-dishevelled petals.
In the window full of sunlight
Concentrates her golden shadow
Fold on fold, until it glows as
Mellow as the glory roses.
