A Rose Grows In The Night

A rose grows in the night
Lit beneath the diamond lights
Petals smooth in silken magic
Blossom crimson shaded fabric
I touch the stem and thorns
Disappear from their tragic court
Scent regales the pollens nectar
That sings in childhood's laughter
Where smiles are like roses
That grow inside the night

    There's a turning in this poem with the lines I TOUCH THE STEM AND THORNS/TURN AWAY FROM THEIR TRAGIC COURT. I assume this has to do with the the possibility of the thorns piercing flesh. But the poem then turns and echoes its beginning with the play and innocence of children. If I'm reading it rightly, this is a rescued ending of a poem that could have turned out badly. The children saved the day and the rose. (Report) Reply
