Something swordsmen and gardeners both know . . .

Submitted:Mar 22, 2012    Reads: 11    Comments: 1    Likes: 0   

A sword is different from a rose,

And yet they are the same --

For every proper swordsman knows

That neither one is tame.

A rose may grow by golden towers,

Be trained along a wall;

But roses too have will and power,

They're living as us all.

So swords, as well, are sharp and free,

Hard, shining as a gem.

We clasp their handles helplessly . . .

Yet think we master them.
