The Rose Family Poem by Robert Frost

The Rose Family

Rating: 3.6

The rose is a rose,
And was always a rose.
But the theory now goes
That the apple's a rose,
And the pear is, and so's
The plum, I suppose.
The dear only knows
What will next prove a rose.
You, of course, are a rose -
But were always a rose.


Beautiful. Frost always captures my heart.

Indeed, only Frost has such lightness of touch. He makes the rest of us seem heavy-handed.

I say the poem's about inner beauty, where everything is as beautiful as a rose on the inside.

A rose must remain with the sun and the rain or it's lovely promise won't come true.
