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.
