Roses ~ Author Sandra Lyon Kramer

A rose by any other name

Can only be called an individual,

Beautified by its imperfections

And perfected by its flaws.

And though this rose

Is shriveled by the heat of impartial attack

And pounded by the pouring rain of defeat

It can only grow

If occasionally overexposed

To the elements.

Are not all

Old and strong bushes

Beautiful

Because they were brave enough

To weather their storms?
