To a Rose

We sow the seeds that pretty flowers make
And nurture little saplings as they grow
And tending to the flower I will ache
To see the bloom that nature will bestow
The painful love that I will tend throughout
Creates a hearts desire within her bud
To flower ever brighter without doubt
This rose is red, like life in every drop of blood
There are no other flowers needed here
For my one rose is yet enough for me
With dewdrops on the petals like a tear
I hover round her like a nectared bee

Submission’s flower grows out the soil of love
Aspires to reach the stars so high above
