The Rose - Poem by Virgil Howard

I saw the rose,
the rose was red,
the pained heart,
whose blood had bled.

I saw the rose,
I saw the dew
the hearts intact,
are very few.

I saw the rose,
I saw the thorns,
says the widow,
who constantly mourns

I saw the rose,
it drinks the rain,
it uses the the water,
to ease its pain.
