Silent Whisperings . . . .
The girl had a rose.
It came from a lover.
He lived down the lane.
But, when He came to town,
He stopped to buy a rose.
One rose for one girl, the lover had with him.
And there in His hand, He came with one rose
The rose had a thorn.
But it was not sharp.
The edge was blunt.
It did no harm.
No blood was shed.
All He had was the rose with a thorn.
All she had was the rose when He was gone.
And, when He left, was when the One thorn
pricked her breast.
