Blood Red Roses (by Shadow. S)

I see three blood red roses lying on a riverbed

One, two, three by a waterfall

When they should be near grass instead.

And in the autumn and the winter their petals start to dimmer

But this glum state isn't for all

For in the spring and the summer, their petals will start to glimmer

One by one they start to welt until the very last

For this one shines so bright,

It disappears into the murky grass

Now it waits so lonely until the others come

Sleepy now dormant

Lying in the bright warm sun...
