A Poem

The Little Rose Tree

Every rose on the little tree
Is making a different face at me!
Some look surprised when I pass by,
And others droop – but they are shy.
These two whose heads together press 
Tell secrets I could never guess.
Some have their heads thrown back to sing,
And all the buds are listening.
I wonder if the gardener knows,
Or if he calls each just a rose.?

Rachel Field


Since we are in May I took up a poem that sings about roses. which must be appropriate for the month of May. Rachel Field started out as a novelist, and then became known as a novelist for children’s books. She was very versatile, writing novels, short stories, poems, and even drew illustrations for books.Image
