When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down 'happy'. They told me I didn't understand the assignment. I told them they didn't understand life

The rose of green shines as a queen
With emerald luster petals gleam
A subtle beauty few have seen
The awe that is a rose of green

Angelic love, so clear and clean
Romantic as an ocean scene
With beauty stolen from a dream
Breathtaking is the rose of green.

Dainty as a diamond dream
Brighter than the sunlight’s beam
Bursting with a grand esteem
Floral regime: The rose of green

A lavish beauty set agleam
Jewels from the heavens’ ream
Enchanting is the constant theme
How exquisite is the rose of green?

All of nature’s wondrous scenes
Every of all splendid dreams
The entourage of beauty’s team
Wither by the rose of green

The author's comments:
On February 14th, my dear significant other bestowed upon me a rose as a symbol of his love. Knowing my adoration of the emerald hue, he had dyed it a marvelous shade of seafoam-green. It is undoubtedly the most gorgeous blossom I have ever seen, and by way of thanks I have written a poem in its honor.

Although the poem was written literally, I did slip in a hint of symbolism. The rose of green is unique, unheard of. You simply do not find a rose of green in nature, and few choose to dye a flower such a color. The pure rarity of such a thing makes it all the more beautiful.
