My Pretty Rose Tree

My Pretty Rose Tree

William Blake


flower was offered to me:

Such a flower as May never bore.

But I said "I’ve a Pretty Rose-tree",

And I passed the sweet flower o’er.

I went to my Pretty Rose-tree

To tend her by day and by night.

But my Rose turn’d away with jealousy:

And her thorns were my only delight.

    Ignored and mis-used most people will offer their thorns..for their own sake
