Heather Burns


The Secret of the Rose


Rose, a
symbol of
beauty, purity,
power, excellence

An emblem
of silence,
a tear dropped

brought
her into
existence

Becoming
a lovely lady
remaining closed

around the
heart, preventing
distress
a rare flower.

    Victoria your comment is as suspicious as a bedroom voice after dinner. The poem is beautiful and neatly written. I like it Heather. (Report) Reply

    Rose, a
