The Beauty of the Rose

oil painting on canvas

~



The beauty of the Rose

Is that it never knows

The colours that unfold

In the eye that beholds

~


But grows towards the light

Without the joy of sight

She lives for beauties sake

And gives more than she takes

~

She leaves much more behind

Than Man will ever find

And is forever one

With the stars, rain and sun

~

For the clouds of the sky

Will tell her no lies

The shadows on the fields

Will bring her no ills

~

She never feels the cold

Or needs the skill to hold

More than this moment now

And never wonders how

~

The mighty wind does blow

Or the great rivers flow

But is part of the whole

That is forever so.

Good to see you posting here after so long. Like the paintings and the poem..

"She never feels the cold
Or needs the skill to hold
More than this moment now
And never wonders how"

Loved this stanza...
