whenever the rose becomes jealous and turns away, the thorns is the only thing accessible to the man. To me it represents what it feels like to be on the receiving end of jealousy. And how the pretty flower, which to me could mean temptation of some sort, is only prescribed as a flower, but what he has is a specific type, a rose. Idk why, but to me it tells me he knows exactly who he has at home. And he didn't seem that surprised nor angry as he mentions the jealousy. And he calls her My Rose. Even in jealousy that rose is his to tend to and care for. I love this poem!

I think The Rose Tree is about jealousy, the undeserved type. The man turns down the offer of a single....ummm... night, kiss, whatever... and goes home to his wife who offers him more satisfaction.. Unfortunately the wife is jealous that another woman has given him attention- perhaps because the man put himself into that situation. She turns away from him, giving him the cold shoulder and their marriage is damaged by a misunderstanding- or perhaps an understanding.
