A Thornless Rose
by Frank Cavano
Enclave in a foreign state
Ignoring barbs of hidden hate
You tread the silent sand.
Heart devoid of fright-
Blazing Grace to endless tribes
Forgiving ears to hostile vibes
In You Love takes Its stand.
Oh, Incandescent Light-
Why seek we the helpless dark
Ignoring our own perfect spark
Much closer than our hand?
I do not comprehend----
The map was clearly drawn by You.
'Tis but a fool shares not Your view
Preferring still his sad repose.
I do not understand----
Your wordless Song is there to hear
Why cup both ears in pointless fear
And fail to grasp the Thornless Rose.
