• And still I look for the men who will dare to be
    roses of England
    wild roses of England
    men who are wild roses of England
    with metal thorns, beware!
    but still more brave and still more rare
    the courage of rosiness in a cabbage world
    fragrance of roses in a stale stink of lies
    rose-leaves to bewilder the clever fools
    and rose-briars to strangle the machine.
