The Rosemaker
By Alexandra Korshin
Genre: Poetry Level: Elementary 4-6
Year: 1999 Category: Bell Benton Memorial Poetry Award

The rose maker is an artist.
His profession highly skilled.
First he takes four strands
of hair.
And presses then together,
THE STEM.
Then, he takes a few grains
of sand,
And sprinkles it
all over the stem.
THE THORNS.
Next, he takes two pieces
of clay
and puts them on each side
of the stem.
THE LEAVES.
Last, he picks up the thorny
stem
Pricks his finger with a thorn,
And squeezes three drops
of blood
on top of the stem.
THE ROSE.
