I posted the following message in "Open Poetry". I think "Q&A" is more appropriate. Sorry about that, I'm sorta new at this.. LOL
Help me, please!! I am searching for this poem, "Lack of Roses". I don't know the author, but I know part of the poem:
LACK OF ROSES
She pricked herself upon a thorn,
And now in death reposes.
I'd say she died not from the wound,
But from the lack of roses.
So I will love myself,
And when my garden grows,
I'll pick the loveliest blossom there,
And give myself a rose.
Maybe this is the whole poem, but I don't think so. I think the first part is missing. If you know this poem or it's author, please let me know.
