Roses - Poem by Janelle Morehart

Pink like the petal
Red as the rose
Yellow like a sunflower
White as the snow
Purple like that in a rainbow
Orange like the sunset glow
Sometimes black
Oh so black like the night
Roses go as roses be
Roses Roses and Roses again
I'll give you one if you give me three
I beg for the crimson
I demand for the yellow gold
I die for the white
Roses represent our human life
It can be pretty
Oh so pretty
With it's thorns that bleed
But as everything in this earth that must be
A darkness is cursed to come eventually
A black rose or two
Can cloud a day for you and me
So I beg for the crimson
And I scream for that yellow gold
But most of all I die for the white
So that I may leave life
On those of so soft petals of white
