The nurse’s heart: poems, stories, quotes





There is a rose that grows

There is a rose that grows in
No man’s land and she is beautiful to see
She is the one red rose a sick man knows
She is the work of the master’s hand.
Through my life’s great curse stood a smiling Nurse
She is the rose of no man’s land
and the heart, too.
