~*~ Essence of Flowers ~*~
Take a walk among the flowers
And smell their sweet perfume
You'll feel like you are in paradise
As you gaze at all the blooms.
Such beauty for the eyes to behold
Each flower has its own special scent
The petals create an intricate design
The fragrance and beauty were heaven sent.
Each stem supports so many petals
Leaves are strategically placed here and there
The Lord created such beautiful things
With tender loving care.
These flowers are meant for us to enjoy
Collect some and put them in a vase
Bring some of the outdoors inside with you
They'll beautify your home, your place.
Thank the Lord every single day
For the beauty he has bestowed
The simple pleasure of watching a bud
Start to open and unfold.
Thank you Lord for this beauty
A beauty my eyes can gaze upon
And thank you too for all the sunshine
That helps these flowers open up at dawn.
