The Rooster and The Rose


Sarah Irwin

Oil on Canvas 

30" x 40"

 Accompanying Poem (back of canvas): 

We thought he was

weird. took if for granted that, and

we didn't question that, 

that rose he sat at to play,

bloomed all year. 

We know he was weird, but my how 

that rose - it bloomed all year!

It may have been...

"What do you do all day?" 

"Oh I just play my flute in the garden" 

Said the Artist. 

What this really means is that

the rooster

understood why

the rose bloomed 

all year.
