MY PRETTY ROSE TREE, FR. SONGS OF EXPERIENCE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: A flower was offer'd to me
Last Line: And her thorns were my only delight.
Subject(s): Bible; Flowers; Mythology; Roses


A flower was offered to me,
Such a flower as May never bore;
But I said "I've a pretty rose tree,"
And I passed the sweet flower o'er.

Then I went to my pretty rose tree,
To tend her by day and by night;
But my rose turned away with jealousy,
And her thorns were my only delight.
