The Rose’s Thorns (Rondel) - Poem by Leslie Alexis
The Rose’s Thorns (Rondel)
The rose, of all flowers, it is most beautiful,
And beauty needs a sentinel, so it has thorns,
To guard against those who sees it as a weak one.
Through pain, thorns keep at bay they that are harmful.
To the flower-lover, for thorns we are thankful,
That they keep safe the robes, which superbly adorns
The rose… Of all flowers, it is most beautiful!
And beauty needs a sentinel, so it has thorns.
The rose has a flawless charm, which gives it a pull
Akin to the rooster’s call that invites the morn.
Birds have their beak- of deeper worth, nature forewarns.
The rose has thorns… when you pick, be careful!
The rose - of all flowers - It is most beautiful!
