The Rose


A rose is a flower so hardy, yet sweet,
with it, no other flower dares to compete,
with a wonderful aroma, to delight any nose,
what a wonderful flower, this ruby red rose,
it grows on a bush with many pickers,
if you're not careful you will feel it's sharp stickers,
it comes in all colors, it comes in all hues,
it makes you feel special, it chases the blues,
it is good for occasions, both happy and sad,
it brings joy to a heart and makes it feel glad,
to make someone's, happiness billow,
just place a perfect red rose upon her pillow,
you know she will raise it up to her nose,
to breathe the aroma from that wonderful rose,
I have seen many roses, red, yellow and pink,
all of them beautiful, or so I think,
there is one color that I have never seen,
that is a rose in kelly green.
so I send this rose especially to you,
breathe it's aroma, enjoy it's red hue,
now I have come to the end of my poem,
I hope this red rose brightens your home.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,

God leaves alone.
