The Rose in the Shard

Once there was a girl that loved roses in the garden where she lived

She would follow all the honey bees around to the castle where they dwell

Standing there watching them for hours on end, they were everything to her

Her only friends

She would pet their wings, and let them crawl upon her hand

Protecting them when no one can

On this day she picked a rose and admired it throughout the day

Her friends saw her delight in it and decided to give her a gift

The bees began to encase the rose inside their honey and wax

And presented her the rose in the shard, for it will ever last
