OPENING POEM-CHEROKEE ROSE She goes by the name of Cherokee Rose. A symbol of suffering wherever she grows. A flower so pretty, in all of her glory shown. A reminder of the tears shed where she's grown. The white of the flower signifies the mothers tears. On The Trail where they cried while giving in to fears. The gold of the center to mark the land taken from the Cherokee and passed to another's hand. Seven petals to form the flower, for the seven Cherokee clans, forced to walk The Trail and to leave their land. They call her Cherokee Rose. A legend in the making. The symbol of hope on the walk they were taking. Along the Trail Of Tears you will see The Cherokee Rose in all her glory. Something so pretty to represent, a tale so sad, the misery long spent. Cherokee Rose still grows along The Trail Of Tears, to remind us of the hope they had through those years. Cherokee Rose with all your beauty retained, you stand as a symbol of what we will regain. Cherokee Rose, the symbol of peace. Long may you flourish until the pain does ease.
