Treasure Island

Matthias Pantaleon

(August 24,1984 / Oronija Island, Nigeria)

A Rose Without Petal


Have you ever seen a rose without pedal
She is like to a bird without wings
Alone, she strives in her world
For butterflies wouldn't whisper in her ears
Nor beetle whistle at night
Just her wings frail on her shoulders
The sun on her face
And the world on her pride
Have you ever seen a rose without pedal
She is but a stranger to herself

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
