A Gardener's Seed by AMK 3/20/2020

Did we design the seed?

The little grain of Hope.

Did we comand to grow?

The little sprout of Faith.

Did we create the Light?

The ray that makes it grow.

Did we command the rains?

Fair charity towards all.

Did we ordain the waters under earth?

A fountain for the roots.

Did we design the flowers from seed?

In endless varieties through Grace.

No! We create the chaos.

Directed by our fleshy legacy.

We forget to water and to prune,

 Overmanure, and left to our devices ,

Scorch the plants to dust.

Thankfully we endure in beauty,

But only by HIs Grace.
