"I SEE HIS BLOOD UPON THE ROSE"

Joseph Mary Plunkett, 1887-1916

   


1

I see His blood upon the rose


And in the stars the glory of His eyes


His body gleams amid eternal snows


His tears fall from the skies

2

I see His face in every flower


The thunder and the singing of the birds


Are but His voice - and carven by His power


Rocks are His written words

3

All pathways by His feet are worn


His strong heart stirs the ever beating sea


His crown of thorns is twined with every thorn


His cross is every tree
