Red Cluster Petal Flower Field during Sunset

A Red Rose Yearning For The Wild I sit in a nursery rhyme Red A thousand times. A pretty rose in a garden bed. A child's incantation My blossoms lighting up his face. But I sit in damnation Please, please take away from this place. To a faraway passage off in the wild With verdant grasses and sunshine. Away from the eyes of a child Where I can bare with others on the vine. Take me, take me, uproot me now To my angelic children, I now take a bow. connie pachecho 9/20/17 PERSONIFICATION OF PLANT Note-Of course connie reads the contest rules wrong, noting 10 lines max, 14 syllables a line.
