Green stems intertwine,
A stylish emerald vine,
Glowing rubicund pedals held by the stalk,
Anyone whose eyes gaze at that is sure to talk,
Small piles of pollen lying gently in the buds,
Thick, penetrating thorns attached to the stem, dense,
Giving the beauty defense.


The author's comments:
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Yet why are roses the color of blood,
If they say "I love you"?
