Artist's Description

Planted by a loving gardener
A blooming rose bush flourished from the love
Well watered and nothing to harden her
She was cared for like a delicate turtle dove

She found her place in summer’s bliss
Preened, trimmed, and guarded, she settled in
But she knew not of winter’s kiss
Life would not let her win

Winter brought her many trials
The pain as her companions died away
And her guardian set off to travel many miles
She wishes to not linger on today

When winter finally seemed to melt away
It reared its ugly head
A strange new gardener came to stay
He was cruel and his heart was filled with lead

The gardener left her to fend for herself
In the cold, un-preened and untrimmed
He did not even care about her health
He just caused an awful din

The aphids crawled back in
They picked at her bit by bit
They tore her down so she could not win
She tried to fight but she can not even hit

Her lady bug tried to make them stop
But there were too many to combat
And soon she just dropped
Dropped like a falling hat

The rose bush lost her will to fight
Her friends all gone
She wanted to just fade into the dark night
She does not understand, she did no wrong

But then the sun came ore the rise
The gardener gone the pressure stopped
She started to grow without all the lies
The hope restored and the pain dropped

As the light starts to creep
She is caressed by loving hands
The sweet guardian was back without a peep
She had returned to till her unturned lands

The rose bush flourished once again
She was cared for and preened
The pain reversed before it had began
And away the aphids were cleaned

As the sun crested its peek
Her deep red petal glows
Away from the hard streak
Everything pales in comparison to the blooming of a morning rose
