On the hillside grew a lovely rose
A rose to behold
The sun and rain did bless the rose
And nature smiled, it was told

Proud was the rose midst the widow-hood
Its fragrance pure as gold
All creation understood
And bowed as its petals would unfold

Soon the weeds did gather ‘round the rose
"Share with us your beauty", they asked in coy repose
"Give us each one petal, for then we all will be
Beautiful and worthy, to stand with dignity!”

Run, run, run from the horse-tail
"Run away!" was the cry from the loon
"Stay, stay, stay!" cried the thorn tree
Listen to your heart

"Listen to your heart", came a plea from the moon

Then a stillness settled on the land
The rose in all her wisdom, stretched out a gentle hand
And touched each one around her, none was to be denied
She knew the secret of their beauty came from deep inside

Each of you is part of a plan from above
You give light to others, there is no greater love
Be strong in one another, and then you all will see
You won’t need any petals, you have your dignity”

On the hillside grew a lovely rose
A friend amid the wild
The sun and rain did bless the rose
And nature smiled

And nature smiled
