To the Tune.. The Rose

Josephine Duthie
Aberdeen, Scotland

Like a flower a child should blossom
Safe within a world of care,
Never lend them to the stranger
Who will strip their futures bare.

If we take the snow in winter
And the sun that warms the air,

Like a flower she gives us beauty
Like a stem he turns her head,
Pluck them from the perfect picture

Like a flower a child should flourish
Growing stronger day by day,
Take the life that flows inside them
And the sunshine fades away.

If we take ...
