Between the rails of the garden fence Leaves have lodged to peaceful sleep The winter through, quiet, waiting, For spring rain and warm sun To replace them on the branches overhead And grant them leave to Return to the soil.
Winter bloom, November rose, Red and glowing in the sun. Sing our hearts To the year’s end Cheer us on till spring comes.
Sunflowers, you face the sunlight At sunset gently bow your heads Reverent, you know where strength comes from. You bloom where you are planted In a ditch or in a garden fair You endure the heat.Yes, relish it! Bring joy everywhere.
