Winter Rose – Helleborus

When the winter rose starts to bloom you know that it really is winter!

The year before last I thought some green leaves were weeds!

I kept on chopping them off, tell my friend said :”this is a Winter Rose”

This year I looked after it and

Here we are
Winter roses!

 Winter Rose

A winter rose
So fragile and fair
It’s grace and beauty
Beyond compare

Standing strong
Against the cold winter winds
Never breaking
Never giving in.

You remind me so
Of that winter rose
Just a little as those cold winds blow

And like that rose
I shall cut you free
And keep you warm and safe with me

Keep you safe
Within my heart
Until those winter storm clouds part
