Ah sweet rose!
How like a butterfly though art!
You came to me unbidden and landed in my palms,
and brought both joy and magic to my heart!
My hands you a captive made,
and I felt you flitter and flutter therein.
Such power I had, yours low laid.
Oh but alas!
I can not keep you sweet child!
Your beauty lies in freedom and flight!
So fly free and pretty into the wild!
Come and dance with me if you dare,
And if you let me I will trap you too,
And make you mine in my dark lair…
