A rose is a rose the smell and the colour the sights and the sounds the texture the lustre the velvet the pristine the signature gleams the maker

The violets the meadows I’ll take you away from the shadows you never belonged there 

And if anything hurts you I’ll kill it

The rock will pour out for us

The rock calls out to us

Calls us by name
