The Fragile Rose



Oh lovely rose of summer


How beautiful you are

So fragile yet will bloom for days

Under the night time star


You stand in all your glory,

The garden’s queen for sure

Bright pink, soft white

Golden yellow, ruby red

Soft fragrance to alure

Your duties are so endlessimages

A bride to be, a birth

You laid upon a casket

You laid upon their earth


You sat upon a table

For dinner or for cheer

To soften pain of patients ill

To them you were so dear

Oh lovely rose my fragile rose

God’s gift, so pure, so right

Remembered when the day is gone


As my eyes close for the night.

God’s gift to one and all.
