Deep Marsh Roses

Though often thought creepy, the deep marsh definitely holds its beauty.

Deep Marsh Roses
by Michael Romani

When poised with the question of the deep marsh
Most people think first in terms of things harsh
But, were you to ask Alice about the marsh rose
She'd tell you of beauty not things that decompose

There on the trails we find much contemplation
Wanderings of the mind held with fascination
Such as how do tadpole eggs know when to grow tails
And how does a hobo choose which way to ride rails

Sometimes the things we find out along the way
Are things that make being lost worth an entire day
Like hidden waterfalls made by God to be found
After spending hours lazily clomping around

Some of the best things I've have found
Were found while feeling lost and out of bound
There on the edges of life is the creativity
That as beautiful as marsh roses means so much to me
