Send 1 RoseA single rose says it so much better!

Single White Rose

One single, white rose Among so many red
Individual, genuine beauty, an outcast.
Could it be purer than the rest?

Its ivory surface looks strange
Among the crimson-stained flowers
Its crisp clean smell enchants.

By any other name–we know
It would smell as sweet
But by any other color, it would not be so alluring.

Not RED
Not stained with the savageness of love
Not apologetic, troubled, withered yellow.

But white–chaste, pure untouched ivory
Its petals will not wither, will not fall
An outcast among SO MANY red
an outcast among all the rest
It will outlive them all.
