A rose grew by the garden path
A child took a sniff, ran away with a laugh.
A short time later, a man walked by
Smelled the rose and made a pleasant sigh.
Now, I’ll ask a question, if I may.
If the rose were sniffed by a hundred noses,
Would it lose its fragrance by the end of the day?
So, what is my lesson from the rose?
Jesus’ love suffers no loss
No matter the number
Who partake at the cross.
I wrote this several years ago and posted it sometime before. I am posting again because it seems to fit today’s Discover Prompt “Scent”

Nice! You write with so much meaning! 🙂 (thumbs up!)
With all your nice words to me, I might really get spoiled. A spoiled grandma. That will be me. 😀
I’m a spoiled kid. 🙂
Think so. 😉
I love this one Oneta! It is perfect.
Thank you, Faye. This poem was sort of a follow up from a lesson I did one time. I called it the pepper experiment. Passed pepper down the aisles. No difference in the potency from the first person to the last. That set the mood for this poem which I did sometime later. I’m glad you like it. I do. It is so true. See I told Rockhorses above that she was spoiling me. I sound spoiled, don’t I? Really our Savior would rather dump good on us rather than bad if we would grow equally well. If I keep writing, I’ll have another post. 😀
Teaching of importance to make folks think. Thank you.
For sure Jesus love suffers no lose
He is the centre of of every human aspect
