A Rose in a Vase Full of Roses

The roses in Mr. Hunter's garden are in full bloom,
so when he saw this bouquet, Mr. H
 tucked himself in with the Yves Piagets, the Cecile Brunners, 
and the other spring astonishments.

May 2012

I wouldn't mind being a rose
in a field full of roses. 
Fear has not yet occurred to them, nor ambition.
Reason they have not yet thought of.
Neither do they ask themselves how long they must be roses, and then what.
Or any other foolish question.
          Mary Oliver, from "Roses, Late Summer"
