The Little Rose Tree

I am starting a new tradition where I adopt a new poem every month.  I can analyze it, memorize it, or illustrate it.  This month I adopted The Little Rose Tree by Rachel Field because I felt it was just begging to be illustrated!  

The Little Rose Tree

 Every rose on the little tree
Is making a different face at me!
Some look surprised when I pass by
And others droop—but they are shy.

These two whose heads together press
Tell secrets I could never guess.
Some have their heads thrown back to sing,
And all the buds are listening.

I wonder if the gardener knows,
Or if he calls each just a rose?
