    Hope springs eternal in the beauty of tribulation
    In the bosom of adversity you hail most triumphant
    My beautiful and precious rose of crimson hue
    Surrounded by a bed of slate colored stone
    There you thrive and grow despite
    Your bleak existence of nothingness
    I’m in awe of your drive and persistence
    What it must have taken to pierce the surface
    Somehow and somewhere in that pewter
    Stained heap of blah and over development
    You stand alone brazenly defying the odds
    There is not a tree, shrub, or blade of grass in sight
    Except for you and all your splendor
    Your delicate lines and bountiful curves
    Your engaging fragrance the renewed nectar of the Gods
    This thumb is the color of dark chocolate
    Afraid to even touch in fear of tainting your radiance
    You deserve a thumb the most brilliant tint of sage
    My beautiful and precious rose of crimson hue
    Surrounded by a bed of slate colored stone
    How your magnificence resounds so clear!
