Once upon a time
A flower which bloomed on a desert dry
wanted to see the whole world from the sky
and so it wished for wings to fly

Its wish was granted when an old bee lent its wings that fit
so it swirled into the air and danced with it
it saw valleys full of shadows and forests full of trees
and cities full of people and fishes in the seas

It was happiest however to see a beutiful garden full of flowers
they were prettier than a clear desert sky full of stars
it landed in the garden and cast aside it wings
and introduced itself to it colourful cousins

the flowers heard its tales
and they sang their wonder to the gales
and welcomed it to stay with them with glee
the desert rose accepted heartily

but as moments turned to minutes and days to years
the desert rose remembered the desert with many tears
the pretty flowers with shocked and said
'but why? it is much better for you here instead'

The rose said ' here i am one among many'
there the desert and the sun had only me
and i was a miracle, a treat to the worlds eye
and now i am nothing but an uproot which could fly

and so it said goodbye to the beautiful heavenly garden of eden
and to its enchanting brethen
and desended back into the world with the help of a dove
and returned to the barren desert with love
