Rose, Rose, so ravishing! You open in late summer on tip of a branch, Rose, Rose, I love you! Rose, Rose, you touch me deeply, Rose, Rose, my love is true. You opens in late summer beside the thorns, Rose, Rose, I love you! I pledge my heart, my tender love, Your pure brilliance radiates the whole world. I pledge my heart, my tender love, Your pure radiance illuminates the world. Rose, Rose, so stunning! Rose, Rose, so ravishing! Opens in late summer on tip of a branch, Rose, Rose, I love you! Rose, Rose, your limbs so slender, Rose, Rose, your thorns so sharp. Today stormy rains may ravage you, Bruising your limbs and graceful body. Rose, Rose, your heart is hard. Rose, Rose, your thorns are sharp. In future stormy rains may ravage you, May crush your mellow fruit. *****
