The Geranium
~by Leonard Feeney

If you wish to grow a lily
With its white and golden hue,
You will have to have a mansion
And a gardener or two.


A rose must have a radiant bush
With lots of room and air;
And a peony wants the terrace
Of a multimillionaire;


But all a poor geranium
Will ever ask a man–
Is a little bit of fragrant earth
And an old tomato can.


Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. ~Song of Songs 2:12  ✝

Thank you, Lord Jesus, that you save, you heal, you restore, and you reveal Your Father’s heart to us! You have captured me with grace and I’m caught in Your infinite embrace!
