Chloe’s Rose

On this sunny day
you stand so proud on the
grassy green slanted slope.
To the top of your hill
I will not climb.
I will stop at you,
on this sunny day.
Straight up and proud.
Pretty to look at,
pretty to smell.
The bees a buzz round you.
Your colors of beauty call to my eye.
You will not be for my kitchen vase today.
I know how hard it is to
be so simple and pure and beautiful
and how rare those perfect sunny days.
