The Rose

Some see petals

Some see thorns

Some see beauty

In these blossoms adorned.

Some love red

Some love white

Some love yellow

To express what words cannot write

Some give with love

Some give with gratitude

Some give to remind

another of their love’s magnitude

Some look to admire

Some look to receive

Some look to impress

The lost love one wants to retrieve

So “What’s in a name?”

As the Shakespearean quote goes,

“by any other name would smell as sweet”

This name, “we call a rose.”
