The Rose. A free form sonnet
Age Group: Adult
Consider the Rose, that queen of flowers
Its form and scent beyond compare,
But in its perfection hides a flaw, a thorn,
That if grasped to tight, will sting the grasping hand.
So if I compare thee my love to a rose
And that comparison is warranted,
As you are a queen among women.
Then as well as praising your pleasing form
And comely perfume as of the Rose of Damask,
It becomes apparent that I needs must admit
That thou hast a flaw as well as said Rose.
This fault my love is the thorn, that if grasped
To tight to the lovers breast will draw blood.
So I hold you lightly my love, my queen, my Rose.
