Fragment

 May, like the rose, your beauty grow beyond,
the frost killed stalk and winter hardened thorn.

By your persistence keeping faith in life,
despite the tainted hearts and willful wrong.

Refreshed by loving end the longest day,
kept by kindness, as true as you were born;

to end in bloom beneath a cloudless sky,
a crown to bless the sun warmed softened thorn.
