What the Rose chose

Hide not thy devotion , no , do not close
The path of benediction , Worldly Rose !
Hell’s Stove awaits the egotists who pose
As gods themselves , take note , beware of those !

Hide not thy devotion, no, do not close
The path of Blessings , hark , thou Worldly Rose
The Stove of Hell lies past Sin’s tempting grove
Choose the right path and earn lasting repose .

Hide not thy devotion , no, do not close
The gate to paths by which the Wild Rose blows
No , do not turn toward’s Sin’s treacherous grove
The path that way leads straight to Satan’s Stove

Hide not thy devotion , no , do not close
The path to virtue’s lemon scented grove
The self absorbed will end up most morose
Burning for ever in the ego’s stove

Hide not thy devotion , no, do not close
The path that doth thy virtue most behove
Thou wast not made dear Rose for Hell’s Dread Stove
O Wordly Rose , become the Mystic Rose !

Don’t close , thou shalt not end up in Hell’s Stove
Heaven’s Garden thy devotion doth behove
Hide not thy love , Sweet Rose , thy treasure trove
And choose not Sin but Virtue’s Glorious Grove .

Who knows what the Rose Chose ?
Who knows whom Hell’s Stove drove ?
Who knows whence the wind blows ?
Who knows where’s the lemon grove ?

Devotion knows what the Rose chose
The Rose chose not Hell’s Stove
Love’s heart holds the Rose close
Walled Gardens hide the lemon grove
