The Fire The Rose

 The Fire The Rose

The fire of passion, bud, bloom and thorn they be
So too, the cresting ecstasy of ocean and sea
A rapture of being and enchantment divine
Upon this soul, ever yours, ever mine
What longing lore of love do your petals enfold
Your sweet seductive fragrance I to behold
Bloom in rapture and radiant red array
The kiss of waters upon your petals lay.

Rose Marie Raccioppi
