3-Day Quote Challenge, Round 3, Day 3

One final thank you to Ana P. Rose for asking me to take part in the 3-Day Quote Challenge, and for reawakening an old urge to write something other than prose. ❤

 

Rose 2
“A Rose is a Rose is a Rose.” William Shakespeare

Love came for her on splendid wings of blue

and bones so brown

earth wept for joy,

And left her slashed

and cleft

and rootless

thirsty

fading to a blur of light

so dim

so far away,

she learned to love

with half

a heart

her face uplifted

to the dawn

of Time
