The Rose and the Shadow
by Rani Turton
Bookmark and Share
  The rose spoke to the shadow:
'Why do you follow me?'
The shadow replied, 'Never have I seen
A beauty to rival with thee.'

The rose blushed in confusion
And didn't know what to say.
The shadow, courteously said:
'Let me stay near you if I may'.

'It is only by your substance
That I may take form
Your very existence enables me
To exist and perform.'

The rose and the shadow thus
Became the closest of friends
From sunrise to sunset
The shadow, the rose defends.
