Damask Rose by Mark Andrew Heathcote

Damask rose how fair your beauty holds the light

How fair your fragrance subdues the fears of the night

And how beautifully fair your lowly crimson head

Is with gallantry and passions fed.


With midnight-oils in sunlit soils

Not a fairer beauty there is or be

Oh, damask rose in flaming clothes

What more beauty could there be?


But in man’s hand a maiden fair

With hazelnut brown hair

And roving hands – limbs that exult in hymns

The answer to a prayer.
