This was my very first attempt at free verse, and my first autobiographical work, inspired by a friend who said I was difficult to get to know. I was once known as Rosepetal, and then Ladyrose. This poem started a fire that burned for several years and inspired a myriad of works that when compiled became known as "The Knight and the Lady", which is the book I'm currently preparing for publication, a taste. "The Rose" became known as my "signature work".
