Who gave the Rose the first Kiss?
Was a man or was a woman?
His heart faint with aching bliss,
Dancing the tune of old Pan?
Her hands trembling with fears,
Her rosy face washed by tears?
Only a prophet could foretell
Who first loved the Rose smell
But, only an angel could see,
while farming the heavenly fields,
the first kiss…given by a bumblebee:
against a sting, no flower yields.
