Blue Rose

The Blue Rose
secretly grows
upon a Hill of Heathers
seldom do know

Songs speak of its
but few have lived to see
its rich blood blue petals
smells of sweet ginger and honey

The legend has it
the blue rose can cure
a thousand different ailments
although, I am not

My Grandmother told me
if you eat three petals
before you sleep
the disease which
infects, out of you
it will seep

Not many have heard
the powers of the 
blue rose
for it secretly grows
where seldom
do know

    Is this true, Heather, the legends your grandmother told you? How interesting! We live in different countries so this is a new bit of information for me. Very intriguing write. Perhaps one day you will learn where this blue rose "secretly grows." Beautifully written! Love, Carolyn
