Flowers


BUDS and bells!  Sweet April pleasures,
Springing all around,
White and gold and crimson treasures,
From the cold, unlovely ground!
He who gave them grace and hue
Made the little children too!

When the weary little flowers
Close their starry eyes,
By the dark and dewy hours
Strength and freshness God supplies.
He who sends the gentle dew
Cares for little children too!

Then He gives the pleasant weather,
Sunshine warm and free,
Making all things glad together,
Kind to them and kind to me.
Lovely flowers!  He loveth you,
And the little chldren too!

Though we cannot hear you singing
Softly chiming lays,
Surely God can see you bringing
Silent songs of wordless praise!
Hears your anthem, sweet and true,
Hears the little children too!

–Frances Ridley Havergal from THE POETICAL WORKS
