The Rose

There are many flowers in the garden

But the one I love the best is the rose

With its velvet like petals

It outblooms the rest.

They come with the first sign of Summer

And stay till the end of the year.

The rose can convey a message

To those we love so dear.

Each rose has a name that is famous.

Names we'll not forget.

Their colours and perfumes are varied.

But a black rose no one's found yet.
