LESSON FROM THE ROSE

Once again, my friend, Oneta Hayes of Sweet Aroma, put out a beaute!  Lessons of quiet and profound simplicity come from her pen (keyboard??), and rather than any uninspired commentary on my part, I give you…

LESSON FROM THE ROSE

by Oneta Hayes

 

A rose grew by the garden path,

A child took a sniff, ran away with a laugh.

A short time later, a man walked by,

Smelled the rose and made a pleasant sigh.

 

Now, I’ll ask a question, if I may.

If the rose were sniffed by a hundred noses,

Would the rose lose its fragrance by the end of the day?

 

So, what is my lesson from the rose?

Jesus’ love suffers no loss,

No matter the number who partake at the cross.

Tends toward TMI, so here's the short list: guitar and banjo (both of which have been much neglected as of late), bicycling (ibid), dogs, very black tea, and contemplating and commenting on deep philosophical thoughts about which I have had no academic or professional training. Oh, also reading, writing, but I shy away from arithmetic.
