a rose so delicate
fragile are its petals
guarded with daggers
adding protection
to quickly wilting blooms
from outside elements
specific to weather
conditions their growth
attracting aphids
and lady bugs of all sorts
extremely precious
their care and maintenance
discard with pleasure
another flower
of distinction replaces
a roses beauty


common maybe to most
though exceptionally handsome
they grow with ease
amongst woods and prairies
no thorns to hurt
or dying in certain climates
versatile towards everyone
welcoming with its
simplicity abounds
toning the mood
complimenting many
in any arrangement
its open bloom
brings wonders
tantalizing others
teaming for more daisies
