The Rose’s Response to the Leaf

If I were a rose and you a leaf
I’d think myself well graced
For having you beside me
And knowing your embrace.

I’d gladly share my beauty,
My fragrance, I’ll be bold,
Grateful for your support
There’s nothing I’d withhold!

Most benevolent of companions,
Delightful source of much relief,
Attended by you I’d know pure joy,
If I were a rose and you a leaf.
