The Burr and the Rose

Walking through the fields
Might pick up a burr or two
You can yank them but then
Needly things remain to remind
Better be kind
And gentle
(Not necessarily sentimental)
When coaxing them
Off of you

(Then there are cute burrs
You can’t decide
Whether or not you like
But that is another
Story. )

Similarly in your garden
When fragrant beauty beckons
Your nose
(I reckon)
There might be a few pricks
To suffer before you pick
From the thorns, a rose
