In The Storm Of Roses - Poem by James McLain

The low throaty dissonant rumblings.
Bestirs a bush of sharp tiny thorns.
The green leaves in shadows form,
as the humid air,
the moisture in the driving rain.
Reveals the sagging roses everywhere.

    I believe bestires should be spelled bestirs, but this is possibly not the author's fault. MM (Report) Reply
