Fields of Roses

Fields of Roses

A Poem by Sarah Marie

Dearest, sacred rose,
The world envies you;
It wishes only
To be as lovely,
Honest, pure, and true. 
Proud and holy rose,
You flaunt your beauty
In every shade
From the color of 
Love to chastity.
Petals delicate
Gracefully extend,
Reveling in awe
From their admirers 
Who praise or pretend
There is life beyond
Its bright, boasting blooms-
Kind in the morning,
Demure in the night,
And wild during noon. 
May every girl
These aged secrets learn;
May every  woman
Live to simply be
A rose in a field
Of daisies and thorns.

Such an elegance mingled in purest beauty. This symbol of love and devotion rises above the centuries to color our world with passion in its richest form. Breathe more beauty for us, dear poet. I long to be washed in it.

A very beautiful rose and a very good lesson. You went and took the symbolic rote and everything that makes my head hurt when trying to analyze it, so no comments on that front. So I'll just come out and say I loved it just the way it is, before I tried to analyze it... yeah, didn't work out too well. XD
Anyway, never mind that, it was beautiful so just keep at it. :)
