Roses, in all colours sublime,

Arraigned for stealing sunshine,

Arrayed for hoarding heavens’ hues,

For harbouring hubris undue,

For declining proposals heartfelt,

For mocking entreaties honest,

For knowingly committing these crimes,

Inflicting pain upon humankind . (8)

Buds, spread your petals wide,

Youth must someday subside,

Let me bask in your heavenly glory ,

Narrate my unrequited love’s story,

Maybe breathe your bewitching smile ,

Might as well lie with you awhile,

Swim in your sweetest of scents,

Applaud what you , my rose, represent.  (16)

As a gardener I would tend ,

Like a butterfly attend,

Be a bumble bee, and hover,

In this madhouse of flower shower,

Around your personage in Eden,

Worship you in every season,

Be the high priest in your shrine,

Behold your eternal beauty divine. (24)

If I cannot myself be Rose,

As a lover not hold thee close,

There is nothing left to demand,

Let me witness the spectacle grand,

To be aware of your perfect forms,

Tick-marks against conventional norms,

Be inspired enough for versus to flow,

Blessed to sing, and hail your glow. (32)
