In the Wild

In the Wild

There is wild rose with her
Bright red rose hip
Decorating the forest for winter.

Once I tried to bring her home
And make her grow in my
Neat, domesticated garden.

But she withered away.
She knew what I didn’t yet understand.
Her beauty – and her heart
Belong in the wild wood.
