    THE ROSE OF NO MAN'S LAND

     

    There's a rose that grows in no-man's land

    And it's wonderful to see

    Though its sprayed with tears, it will live for years

    In my garden of memory

     

    It's the one red rose the soldier knows

    It's the work of the Master's hand

    'Neath the War's great curse stands a Red Cross nurse

    She's the rose of no-man's land
