TO A GARDEN ROSE

Oh, beautiful rose in my garden grown
Such charm of color and grace
Did the angels grow in you last night
In heaven's most classical place?
Your petals are pink as a baby's cheek,
Your heart is sprayed with gold;
Did the angels grow you in that
City that never grows old?

No, the angels did not grow me,
Nor did they give me my baby pink,
I bloomed late last night in the darkness
With no light but the stars to blink,
From the dampness of rocky soil I grew
And found color for my face,
Oh, weary soul, faint not, you too
May rise from earth's darkest place.

   
 

 

 

 

 

INSPIRATION

A lovely rose
Grew graceful and tall
And leaned against
My garden wall,
It stretched and stretched
And grew and grew
Till it was over the top
And out of view.

I thought, sometime, I too,
Spirit soaring high and wide
Will cross to see
What's on the Other Side.
