A Rose Now Grows Poem by john (called jack) wren

A Rose Now Grows

Rating: 5.0


It's a place where silence
has the loudest voice
from those who lie there
though not by choice

A place where old swivel head
from the belfry stares
down upon them
with no more cares

And the dewy mist falls
where generations abide
drenching all, who take
the last ride

And from the soil beside
an ageing Church door
a Rose now grows
where none grew before

Grown from the heart
of a Maiden below
only for the eyes
of her loving Beau.
