Death of a Rose 

Cold, cold heart of death
laying on the hard ground
exposed to the element
never making a sound

no plea for assistance
or demands to be warmed
for this frozen rose
remains there fully formed

its rich velvety petals
red against the grey stones
stands out so vividly
but decay will change these tones

decorated with droplets
of fine powdery snow
this once beautiful rose
remains there still aglow

in its dying moments
its scent lingers on
frozen in time now
until the following dawn!
