The Story, Legend and Myth surrounding the Christmas Rose is reflected in this 15th Century poem which talks of a rose which bore a flower in the middle of a cold winter:

A Rose has sprung from a tender root,
From Jesus, as those of old have sung, 
And it bore a flower, 
In the middle of a cold winter, 
When half spent was the night. 
Isaiah foretold it, the Rose I have in mind; 
Is Mary the pure, the little flower has brought us. 
From God's eternal wisdom, she bore a child, 
And remained pure. 
The Flower, so small, whose sweet fragrance fills the air, 
Dispels with glorious splendor the darkness everywhere; 
True man and truer God, helps us out of all sorrows,
Saves from sin and death. 
Oh Jesus, until we leave this misery, 
Let your help guide us into joy, 
In Your Father's Kingdom, where we eternally praise You. 
Oh God, allow us this.
