Wild Roses

Along the path I wandered

Into the forest deep

Wild roses in the summer light

Bright pink and fragrant petals

Tucked away along the woodside

Off the beaten path

Not on display in cultivated gardens

Hidden here where birds do play

Wild roses and their beauty

Their wealth is come-what-may

Unpolished, unforgotten

For their cheery grace

Wild roses of the wild woods

Summer’s on the way

My heart walks wooded paths

Wild roses all around

When I close my eyes to watch them

The forest birds are calling

I will join them if I may

Whenever I’m no longer

Found among the living

Look for me at the edges

Of the forest true

Waving in the sunshine

Against the clear blue sky

A wild rose just for you
