Beauty Asks For A Rose - Poem by Mary Angela Douglas

to the Saviour of all saviours

only bring me the Rose of all roses
clouded pink in winter's storms
the Artic rose no one can comprehend

or reconfigure

the high serene silver
rose confounding moonlight
recovered by kings in flight

from their lost kingdoms

the one that is mirrored in
the starry triptich
whenever I close my eyes

only bring me the cardinal Rose, the rose of
hidden music, scrolled and scrolled the

wounded Rose
the silence of petals streaming

the heart within the heart within the heart
