  • The Rose

    This is a really old one! It has a very familiar beware the thorns theme! I should have posted it long ago . . . but better late than never! Lol!

    THE ROSE

    Never has a flower
    been so immortalized in prose
    as the Beautiful, Fragrant,
    Majestic Rose.
    With its graceful form
    and its petals so fair,
    And a powerful fragrance
    that fills the air.
    Of the 'Queen of Flowers'
    we often sing.
    But there is one
    most important thing:
    If you must pick them
    please take care!
    They are armed with thorns
    so please beware!

    Rhymeboy, I think we are on the same page here!

    The Hawthorn Spike


    I relive your sting
    Of last words as I remove the
    Hawthorn’s bloody spike

      A light, familiar message. A sort of fairy-tale explanation to a child, the mythical Rose, which endures through all our anthropomorphizations upon it. Nice spotlight on it

        My Momma loved roses - most all flowers really - and I'm just beginning to learn the process of pruning the bushes for which she cared. Clumsily, for now, I'm afraid - so this speaks to actual experience for me!
