Red and thorny yet so delicate 

Representing love and etiquette

I can’t seem to keep you alive

You always wilt away and die

 

Red and gorgeous 

You make me so curious

How can something so thorny

Be so beautiful in the morning

 

Away with summer 

I watch you wilt

Oh rose, don’t go

And yet you’ve gone

 

Until next winter 

Until next dawn

Until I see you again

My dear rose
