Roses Reign in the Garden

Roses Reign

~~~~~~~~~~~

Princess of the perennial border

ruffled satin, sweet, and pure

pretty perfumed elegance

A royal profile – yet demure

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Thorns protect her heart’s virtue

lest a careless hand be nigh

They will pierce the haphazard

for just a prince may stay her side

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Many others have sought this lady

But chastity doth guard her soul

Providence has blessed each petal

that she’d be kept for Him alone.

There is only one Protector of the soul and one enemy in various guises.

Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.
