In a rose

The pretty pinks are very far from shy
And honeysuckle’s tickling my nose
Though other blooms will often tempt my eye
I always see your beauty in a rose

A clematis along the garage wall
Is intertwined with passion fruit and flower
A row of pots displays the very small
Beside a bed where lilies are in power

I’d really rather have the strawberries
Than all the flowers the garden has to boast
Where scent and colours do their best to please
Fresh garden fruit is what I love the most

But rules are made for breaking I suppose
I always see your beauty in a rose
