GARDEN THOUGHTS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Some of us are roses
Last Line: "and another ""bad""?"
Subject(s): Flowers; Gardens & Gardening

SOME of us are roses,
Some of us are weeds;
All of us began in clay,
Silent little seeds.

Some of us are flaunting,
Some of us are shy;
All of us have roots in earth,
Faces to the sky.

Some give joy by living,
Some leave fragrance, dead;
Thorns and spines and ugliness
May yield balm or bread.

Twisted, seared and stunted,
Radiant, sweet and glad;
Who shall say that one is "good"
And another "bad"?
