A rose in hand looks so much beautiful;
A garland too is grand and gorgeous;
But roses strewn en way is utter waste;
Bouquets aplenty turns a common sight!
A garden having roses of one type,
Is like a lawn or carpet, not too good;
A garden with variety of roses
Is feast to eyes that watch their hues and shapes.
Too much of anything undoes effects;
A single petal yet, looks wonderful;
A mound of roses is no treat to eyes;
A rose given from heart with love is great!
How beautiful God made Mother Nature,
And clothed each flower in robes of grandeur!
