You are here

The Rose grows gracefully in nature,

breathing the pure fresh air,

drinking the cool rainwater.

The rose is a delight to look at,

it brings a joy to my heart.

The rose gives a wonderful scent,

the rose I believe should be protected,

the rose should not be frightened.

The rose should be allowed the space, time and freedom to grow,

the rose should not be left isolated or alone.

Is there such a rose in your family?
