they say flowers only blossom in spring
this one sprung in the cold of july
a rose so beautiful: it’s indescribable
a rose so red, it’s like a mother to the rest

i say the butterflies did a great one
their work, so outstanding to i
they’re also beauties in this world
pollinated, the right formula for this beautiful rose

i can say that years have passed
others can also say the same
buh it’s beauty undoubtedly stays
just keeps increasing day in and out

no need to focus on the past years
for one has just begun
with so many favorite songs to play
could we all shout “hooray”?

“happy birthday to iNkosazana yooPhalo”
