A sour lemon tree flower attracts the bee
While its fruit is bitter not so its flower
White is its flower sweet and very pretty

    A lemon tree bears beautiful white flowers, but it has fruits that are sour in taste! All fruits cannot be sweet.... some have to be sour, some bitter, some bland, for variety is the spice of life! Each one is ordained to serve a special purpose...! A teacher cannot do the work of a doctor or a plumber, the work of a carpenter! Great poem! (Report) Reply

    A small gnat carries along a bacteria
    That causes a grower's histeria
    For the tree once infected will be its demise
    Yielding a fruit that's bitter and srunken in size.

    So maybe its God's plan?
    To try the patience of man
    To see if he is willing to make amend
    And spray on the pesticides that means the gnat's end. (Report) Reply
