Is this about a man and a woman or a rose and the sun...perhaps both?
Passion Unfurled

Why hide you so tightly my sweet, sweet rose
While beams of sunlight still dance from aloft
To tenderly kiss a bloom in repose
Red velvet petals, so teasingly coifed

The sun entices and wind gently blows
To beseech a glance from your delicate brow,
But there you stand rigid, prim in your pose
With virgin disdain to rise tall with great prow

And though you disdain the growing warm shiver
From pleasure that dances across your skin,
The heat will release a furtive quiver
Unfurling your sleeping love from within

So spread your crimson arms for your lover
And welcome him with a yearning soft kiss
For passion unfolds and it uncovers
Even unwanted...perpetual bliss
