Made For Lovers - Poem by Faith Elizabeth Brigham

it was spring and not
summer that was made
for lovers and the roses
were designed in such a way
they say i love you without words
like the rose lovers don't need
words either but they do
love the roses


is it for their beauty
or their precious scent
the delicate petals
like velvet and the thorns
that pierce your finger
like a faithless lover
that wounds the innocent
ones caring heart
