Red Rose

by Eternal Muse

Red rose divine with your forever thorns,
on bed of green, in timeless reverie;
Your petals are still beautiful at dawn,
But not for long, so frail your earthly spree.

Your charming eloquence beseeched my soul,
The virgin velvet spelled unbroken vow;
Your incandescent glamour took me whole
and ever graceful was your silent bow.

We found each other through your mystic charm,
A symbol of our souls' unspoken truce;
Alas, we failed to hear your soft alarm,
Your petals died, as our discarded youth.

Red rose, your wisdom will transcend the Time,
All wrapped in passion, clover, sage and rhyme.
