My Pretty Rose Tree - Poem by William Blake

A flower was offered to me,
Such a flower as May never bore;
But I said 'I've a pretty rose tree,'
And I passed the sweet flower o'er.

Then I went to my pretty rose tree,
To tend her by day and by night;
But my rose turned away with jealousy,
And her thorns were my only delight.

    I think The Rose Tree is about jealousy, the undeserved type. The man turns down the offer of a single....ummm... night, kiss, whatever... and goes home to his wife who offers him more satisfaction.. Unfortunately the wife is jealous that another woman has given him attention- perhaps because the man put himself into that situation. She turns away from him, giving him the cold shoulder and their marriage is damaged by a misunderstanding- or perhaps an understanding. (Report) Reply
