Your tender little blossoms shine so sweetly
As you fulfill your God-ordained duty;
A quiet growth of  yellow petals greet me
And fill my heart fresh-full with beauty.

Thank you, Lord
For the humble glow of these, your dear flowers
Glimmered by sun and rinsed by showers;
I delight in the Lord who created each and all,
Yet find Your Divine Presence the best gift of all.
