- The Rose of Skagen - Part 3 -

The Promise


 

 

In the midst of the suffering the rose heard a bird singing. It was the lark. Its song was so cheerful.

 

 

"Why are you singing?" cried the rose. "Because of a promise," answered the lark.

 

 

 



"Two thousand years ago a man gave us a wonderful promise. He said, ‘Look at the birds in the sky.’ It means that I will never lack in anything. That’s why I sing. I am a messenger from him who gave the promise. He also said, ‘Look at the lilies in the field.’ That must be for you."

 

"I’m not a flower," said the rose. "I’m just a miserable little plant with shrivelled leaves. And after the sting I feel that I carry death in my heart."

 

"I have heard your sighs," said the lark, "but life is more than sighs.

 

Even if you feel death in your heart, you will know the greatest joy. For the greatest pain is followed by the greatest joy. And remember that hardship is good fortune when it leads towards the goal. The promise of the lilies is yours. So wait, dear friend, wait only a bit more. Listen to my song. Happiness and blessings will come to you. Wait and see."
