• Born as a delicate bud
    Sprouting from the ground
    This blooming rose began so small
    And had ripened as it grew in scarlet beauty.
    The drops of rain on the pure petals
    Exposed such soft elegance
    As the plant absorbed the water
    To survive the scorching hot day
    That was to come.
    But study this sweet rose,
    And you'll see beneath the splendor
    There are sharp thorns deep within the stem
    That can easily p***k the finger.
