The sweet sienna Rose


Up in the hills of Greenhaven
There lives a lady there
A maid of such exquisite beauty
With long black velvet hair
And her eyes, her gentle eyes!
They made folk gently weep
And that lady had compassion
A thousand fathoms deep.

 She loved to walk the forest paths
That all around her lay
Where all the forest people lived
Who loved to sing and play
Sienna rose [this was her name]
She loved these forest folk
She’d often seek their company
And share a wine and joke.

These forest folk all loved their Rose
[That’s what they chose to call her}
Whenever she was there with them
Their pure hearts she would stir
So humble too, this lovely lass
Her essence so divine
And every where our Rose did go
The sun would surely shine.

One day our Rose was on a trek
Her heart brim filled with love
A raven flew above her head
And cackled from above
He told her of the evil witch 
The hated Esmeralda
And what that witch would do to her
If ever she should find her

Sienna Rose she smiled at him
Then said with a cheeky grin
Pray tell the lady Esmeralda
I have no wish to win
Then gaily she went on her way
With a dance so sweet like flowers
And all the trees and birds and bees
Bowed down to Roses power

Then soon because of fickle fate
She met there on her path
That evil witch, the Esmeralda
She heard her wicked laugh
Then she sighted to her fore
A dark and leering figure
Who looked at her with hate filled eyes
And gave an evil snigger’

Sienna Rose, she looked at her
With her gentle, angel smile
As both they gazed into each other
And in a little while
The face of Esmeralda witch
It softened just a mite
It seemed to some folk that, her look
It had a softer light.

Then she broke into a smile
Then chortled just a little
Then there came a great big grin
No longer she was brittle
Sienna Rose had touched the soul
Of a dark and lonely power
And showed her that the breath of love
Doth make all evil flower.
