10 Flower Song

Rebecca Nile ©2007

Once I asked a flower how she came to be
I leaned in close and could have sworn she said this to me
“It’s really very simple how a flower grows
If you follow this guide, well then you will know
We begin our life from bulbs or seeds
So listen now and hear what we need
Soon you’ll see with a little care
Our smiling faces everywhere

Sprinkle us with water add a little sun
Give us healthy soil so our roots can run
Shooting down below like feet
Beneath the earth, safe and deep
Sun above and earth below
Watch us grow and grow and grow

Throughout the day we blossom and bloom
Sharing with all our sweet perfume
In the garden or in the wild
On hot summer days or when it’s mild
If you look into a flower you might be surprised
That right inside the center is where a fairy lies
If you never see one, please do not be sad
Just enjoy each flower and if you smile we’ll be so glad

Sprinkle us with water add a little sun
Give us healthy soil so our roots can run
Shooting down below like feet
Beneath the earth, safe and deep
Sun above and earth below now
Watch us grow and grow and grow
Sun above and earth below now
Watch us grow and grow and grow”

And after that I stood up and looked around to see
If anyone had heard her speak or was it only me
But her words I will remember forever and a day
I’ll keep my garden growing and this is what I’ll say

“I’ll sprinkle you with water add a little sun
I’ll give you healthy soil so your roots can run
Shooting down below like feet
Beneath the earth, safe and deep
Sun above and earth below I’ll
Watch you grow and grow and grow
Sun above and earth below I’ll
Watch you grow and grow and grow
Sun above and earth below I’ll
Watch you grow and grow and grow”
