A Flower To Auroville Mother-14 - Poem by Indira Renganathan

Roja, Panneer Roja, (Rose, Damask Rose, Rosa x damascena)


Roja is divine and deferent
Defined to be heaven's descendent
Ambrosia and aroma of her outfit
All set in her purposive heart's kit

Azur and other side darker exempted
Colours she be yet not attempted
A-one beauty, an ace beloved
Fragrant Roja ever a favoured

Aththar and Gulkand, panneer and vinegar
Rosy-rosy Roja's all serving rigor
Countless her qualities, enduring her vigor
Yet ended to me in a doubt of figure

Those leaves serrated and prickles all over
Out of fear for predators are they there
O' Rose of heavens, crush of humans..beware
Custodian is the Lord you pray with care
