WILD ROSES, by                    
First Line: Flash of pink by the roadside
Last Line: O roses, I love you!
Subject(s): Flowers; Roses

Flash of pink by the roadside,
Framed in lobes of green,
Pink like a sea shell's lining,
With meadow grasses' sheen.

An old rail fence forms a trellis,
A heap of rocks, a ledge;
Bits of white cloud make a curtain,
Butterfly weeds, a hedge.

And flowers of the wild, you're bringing
Such happy things I knew,
A trudging child, girl dreams --
O roses, I love you!
