The Gardener

She planted flowers in the spring And as she watered she would sing Then chilling wind blew through the trees With piercing frostbite it would bring As flowers then began to freeze She saved them from the frosty breeze And rescued them from driving sleet The nipping bite had failed to seize Then summer brought a scorching heat Evaporation did deplete The water sources one by one A searing death they all would meet Before the ravages were done She saved them from the burning sun Then fed them with the greatest care And watered them ‘til they had won With generosity to spare Compassion she would always share Her constant work did not abate She gave up more than most could bear She nurtured them with love innate Rewarded now with garden great Resplendence she did cultivate Resplendence she did cultivate
