First Line: He who thinks too much of the thorns knows
Last Line: Is a practical idealist.
Subject(s): Flowers; Idealism; Roses; Thorns


He who thinks too much of the thorns knows
Too little of the beauty of the rose
And is a dismal pessimist.

He who likes the rose so much, indeed,
That to the prickly thorns he fails to heed
Is a foolish optimist.

He, who, though heeding the thorns carefully,
Loves the rose all the more tenderly,
Is a practical idealist.
