An Old Fairy Tale

June 8, 2008
By Bridget Cohen, Madison, NJ

amidst the darkness
In a world of black and white
A colorful rose
Glows in the weary night
All around owls voices echo
As bats dance to their music
And the dull moonlight fades into the sky
Once the calamitous clouds take over the night
Sadness sweeps the fields
All the roses appear peaked
Except for one
This Spanish rose
displays the hardship of each season
Aging lines show that death is near
Sadness can not be held out for any longer
The edges curl inward
As if pain was being endured
Shriveling up, hope is lost
Anguish takes over the land
And this world becomes like an story book
Black & White & neglected with time
