Rose



~~~

Oh, the beauty of a single rose

In crimson gown and fragrant nose

Where sun and rain has given birth

To what lovely rises from the earth

~~~

In budded youth, so tightly clasped

Upon yourself your wings collapsed

Until the warmth in days of June

Brings the moment for you to bloom

~~~

Every day, you fill my simple world

With your red petals now unfurled

And I look on with great delight

For me, there is no greater sight

~~~

Flora in all its given perfection

Love found in the living reflection

In you, where my hope ever grows

Oh, the beauty of a single rose

~~~
