Rose of Sharon

Petals unfurl in the shimmering mist
in velvet folds, soft and rich
droplets of dew shine like pearls
on you, the rose of Sharon.

Your fragrance fills the air so sweet
wafting across hills and vales
in the rapture of morning’s light
you, the rose of Sharon.

It hasn’t always been this way
a life of velvet and sweet perfume
many a blossom failed to open
as the rose of Sharon.

Thorns appear where never planned
at the time it may bring tears
but in the end tears turn to dew
crowning the rose of Sharon.

Now your petals unfurl in the sun
dancing in the sway of the breeze
sweet and sensual, fragrant and free
you, the rose of Sharon.

You’re the rose of Sharon
a beautiful rose of Sharon
Love embodied, radiant light
a beautiful, beautiful rose.

Love embodied, radiant light
a beautiful, beautiful rose.
a beautiful rose of Sharon.
Harp lyrics by Sharon Lyn Shepard

Note: Rose of Sharon means …
“Consumed by Love” or “The Beloved One”,
often referred to in “Song of Songs” in the bible.
