Red Rose

A rose, a sweet scented red rose
The essence of a true romance
Given as a symbol of love
Sending your heart into a trance

Petals wrapped around the center
Tightly sealed to protect its heart
As this new relationship grows
For this flower is a work of art

Sharp thorns protect this creation
From  all those evil invasions
For this beauty can mesmerize
Stop you dead on most occasions

As time goes on the flower opens
Releasing its entrancing scent
And revealing its sweet centre
Showing its exquisite extent

Once the rose is fully open
Its whole beauty is there for all
A true indicator of love
A red scented rose standing tall
