Oh flower why are you so small?

Oh flower
Why are you so small?
With many blooms
Of white and blue

I’ve found you
Again - this summer
So faraway
From my town of town

In sweetly scent
You embraced me
So tenderly now
You make me safe
And worthy too

Sweet flower
I kiss your buds
Don’t be afraid
I won't snap your stem

Because of you I came
To this green forest
To have you here
And blossom

I've found you
In a silent garden
Of wilderness shrine
And beauty

Your little green leaves
Welcomed me
With so much
For me to see

Now I can stare
And be proud
That you stand
In your freedom

With many wonderful blooms
That freedom gave
To life

The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
