The Little Rose Tree by Rachel Field









The Little Rose Tree 

by Rachel Field


Every rose on the little tree 
Is making a different face at me! 
Some look surprised when I pass by, 
And others droop — but they are shy. 
These two whose heads together press 
Tell secrets I could never guess. 
Some have their heads thrown back to sing, 
And all the buds are listening. 
I wonder if the gardener knows, 
Or if he calls each just a rose?
