A Rose For A Lady


Such silk of innocent sin
Much greater beauty within
Like a rose in bloom

Single touch to bring light
And in that, bring life
Banish the remaining gloom

But a prick of the thorn
To defend the scorn
Will heal so soon

Prick of pain from vines
Wrap the splendor and intertwine
Envy of the flowing plume

Grows in lush taste
Fear not, beauty that will not waste
Through the many moons.
