Dangerous daggers I bear about me...

Dangerous daggers I bear about me,
carrying them as I climb,
ready to prick any who would plunder me.
But my scented gown is soft as silk;
my skirts are scarlet,
welcoming winged lovers.
But he who comes to carry me away,
who takes care of me with tenderness,
has another lover, lovelier than I,
with no name other than my own.

Rose (a red one, I believe).

Thorns, a rose, bees, Sam, and Rosie Cotton?

Oh dear, I'm such a Whovian, my first thought was of The Doctor and Rose. I expect your answer is much more correct! :)

Climbing rose? (I haven't looked at the other comments yet, so forgive me if this has already been posted.)

I, too, guess a red rose.
