Treasure Island

Heather Burns


The Secret of the Rose


Rose, a
symbol of
beauty, purity,
power, excellence

An emblem
of silence,
a tear dropped

brought
her into
existence

Becoming
a lovely lady
remaining closed

around the
heart, preventing
distress
a rare flower.

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
