My Pretty Rose Tree | Poem by William Blake

A flower was offered to me;
Such a flower as May never bore.

But I said I've a Pretty Rose-tree.

And I passed the sweet flower o'er.

Then I went to my Pretty Rose-tree:
To tend her by day and by night.

But my Rose turnd away with jealousy:
And her thorns were my only delight.
