I Have A White Rose To Tend (Verse Xxxix)

Rating: 4.2
I have a white rose to tend
In July as in January;
I give it to the true friend
Who offers his frank hand to me.
And for the cruel one whose blows
Break the heart by which I live,
Thistle nor thorn do I give:
For him, too, I have a white rose.

CULTIVO UNA ROSA BLANCA... (Verso XXXIX)

Beautiful poem. It needs a great deal of moral strength to treat friends and foes as equal.

Beautiful sentiments. A thoughtful reminder to turn the other cheek, at least. Ironic for someone willing to lay down his life for his ideals. Maybe he was more of a realist than this might indicate.

A poem of peace and for peace. The white Rose, its symbol. Jose Marti was a Cuban poet who fought in the war of independence of Cuba against Spain. Cuba was Spain's last colony in the Americas. Marti wrote some of the best Latin American poetry. Unfortunately he died quite young, fighting for his country's independence, sadly still enslaved today.
