Rose to Remember
by Josh Mahler
Rose to remember, raspberry to protect. Wound about the birch and bound in blood. In the Eyre’s dark this will preserve, help you remember who you were.
‘Ware the dark paths and forests song.
‘Ware the deep places where men don’t belong.
When death comes to you, reach for Blackberry and rose, tied round birch tight. Blade and Greenheart, Warden, Sage, Guard. They will see you through like the guiding star.
