Elle, even though you might have seen right away that this poem was about
Jesus, like I did...doesn't mean those that do not know him will pick that
up right away. God Bless : )

I like this poem because it reminds me of the summer and of all the fun
that I am have win I swim. I like to collect roses and just because this
King in this poem sounds cruel, it doesn't mean that roses can't be anyones
favorite flower.
