From Raindrops to Roses

 

From Raindrops to Roses

From raindrops to roses,

That’s how nature grows, 

So have no impatience

And don’t be morose.

A garden needs planning,

Good soil, tender care.

Raindrops and sunlight 

Will all help prepare

The loveliest surprises, 

The sweetest bouquet

And soon fragrant roses

Are then on their way.


If you prick your finger

To capture a rose,

It isn’t a nuisance

As you might suppose.

Things that have value,

Those we most desire

Can only be gained 

By braving the fire.

Unfolding in beauty

Before your own eyes,

God’s greatest gifts

Often come in disguise.
