Our English Rose
by Michael R. Burch

for my mother, Christine Ena Burch, on Mother's Day

The rose isβ€”
the ornament of the earth,
the glory of nature,
the archetype of the flowers,
the blush of the meadows,
a lightning flash of beauty.

NOTE: This is my translation/interpretation of a Sappho epigram.
