The Rose

Stone Angel holding rose

To signal Love, the Divine chose
A flower. Above all – the Rose.
Rose-red – the colour of our hearts.
Rose-thorns – like love, their sting us smarts.

Yet roses also do we borrow
To express our grief and sorrow.
We show honour to the dead
Setting roses at their head.

In life, in death, in love or woes
We express feeling with: a rose.
