A Black Rose in a Bed of Ash


a black rose lay in a bed of ash
everything burnt but that one rose
everything lost by did the rose not die?
what dose the rose mean
as the flmes formed and the fire burnt
things began to be no more
but the black rose
why not it go to
why not it burn first
no one sees it no one knows
it lye there all alone
nouthing on it
nouthing gone
just one black rosse in a bed of ash

    Wonderful Poem I have a poem called Invisiable Rose that is similar. Whenever I think of a Black Rose I think of the episode in Bewitched where they used a black rose.
    Fantastic Job! (Report) Reply

poet Henry Vaughan

They are all gone into the world of light!
And I alone sit ling'ring here;
Their very memory is fair and bright,
And my sad thoughts doth clear.
