May I ask why everyone must dread thee?
Thou art more admirable and more fair,
If thou is full of wonders thou must be,
But nothing less than life, I solemn swear
I’ve seen thee give life to many roses,
But yet, I question if thee will not fade,
And is pleasing the glow thou composes.
By chance, or maybe nature’s untrimmed shade,
But thou’st eternal quest shall yes remain.
To wondrous miracles thous have performed,
Turning this black world to a candy cane,
To finally bringing peace thous informed.
So long as thee remains or eyes can see,
I will be at ease knowing I knew thee.
