Thorn And Rose
by [?]

Far richer than a thornless rose
Whose branch with beauty never glows,
Is that which every June adorns
With perfect bloom among its thorns.

Merely to live without a pain
Is little gladness, little gain,
Ah, welcome joy tho’ mixt with grief,–
The thorn-set flower that crowns the leaf.

June 20, 1914.
