    May Flower

    Thorns are found on stems

    Not roses

     

    Unless

    Of course

    The rose is special

    In which case

    Thorns on roses are not only necessary

    But worthy of our respect

     

     

    John Christopher

    1988

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
