Sweeter than a Rose? – A thoughtful poem.





I sit in quiet contemplation and I suppose,

That nothing can surpass the beauty of the Rose.

But can it’s showy beauty really match, however

those random acts of kindness in some sweet endeavour,

It’s a simple loving message that gives us thoughtful pause

An offer of support, some unexpected shopping left at doors

Those friends who send us texts and we talk to on the phone

Dispels the notion that no-one cares, we are not alone.

So now I’ve thought of it so carefully, I can now assume

that there are more beautiful things than a flower in full bloom

and ‘though it’sย true a Rose would smell as sweet with another name,

Consider too, when all this trouble’s over, will we ever be the same?

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.

  1. I hope we’re not the same! I’d love to see the kindness and sense of community continue. The appreciation for the “essential” low wage workers that keep things going, be more than just a fad.
    Mother Nature will take care of the roses, we need to take care of the rest!

    Well done, Kristian!๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ’Œ

    1. Thank you, Angie. Yes Indeed I hope we reevaluate the pay for those people who have seen us through, not the actors or sportsmen, but the nurses, carers, delivery drivers and shop workers who were deemed as Essential workers, I hope they receive greater appreciation in future. ๐Ÿ™‚
