Gift Of Flowers


A Flower is a gift,
but not for it's own sake,
created out of joy,
and color for the eyes,
such a simple thing,
that leaves smiles in it's wake,
fresh and lovely scent,
from God to you and I,

let every bloom proclaim,
that God is good to us,
such graceful beauty lives,
a token of his love,
unwrapped presents to behold,
from one so generous,
his flower art graces the earth,
bits of wonder, glory touched

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
