“Martian Rose”, a recent poem by Stuart Atkinson

“Martian Rose” (2007), a poem written by Englishman Stuart Atkinson, appears on his weblog. Comprised of fifty lines, the poem is about a rose flower on Mars. Here are the opening lines:

I had a dream we sent
a single seed to Mars, and all Mankind
watched, mesmerised, as a red rose
bloomed on that dusty, rusted world.

An amateur astronomer and spaceflight enthusiast, Stuart Atkinson has written several children’s books on astronomy and space. He loves poetry.
