From Raindrops to Roses

©Mollie Pearce McKibbon

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 yet on their way.

If you prick your fingers

To capture a rose,

It isn’t a nuisance

As you might suppose.

Things that have value,

Those most we desire

Can only be gained

By braving the fire.

Unfolding in beauty

Before your own eyes,

God’s sweetest gifts

Often come in disguise.
