Six Roses



Six red roses all in a line
All growing strong with the passing of time
And they were planted along time ago
And to this day they strongly grow
 
Once there led an empty flower bed
Sitting outside a small homestead
But then there was planted a tiny flower
Watered with the Springtime showers
 
Within a year, up grew a rose
Fragrant smelling, delighting the nose
Growing strong through summer and spring
Ready to face what each day brings
 
And then next year, one became two
For each new year, a new rose grew
So, two became three, three became four
Then five red roses growing by the door
 
Now there are six roses in a line
All growing strong with the passing of time
Always brightening up the homestead door
May there be many roses for ever more
