Roses - Poem by Robert Kumpf

Roses for the blond girl who went a little red.
Roses for the lunatic, mind left cold and dead.
Roses for the college girl, with whom I shared the bread.
Roses for the flower girl, and roses for the dead. Roses for all the ones still trapped by jealousy.
Roses for the wiser ones who tried to set me free.
Roses for the ignorant, so they let me be.
Roses for the flower girl, and roses for the sea. Roses for the wishing ones who dream their lives away.
Roses for the shy ones, who just don't know what to say.
Roses for enlightened ones, who help to guide my way.
Roses for the broken hearted, and roses for the prey.
Roses for the ones who understand what is said.
Roses for the flower girl, and roses for the dead.
Roses for the flower girl, and roses for the dead.
