Flowers [poem by “Southern Cross”]

[Editor: This poem by “Southern Cross” was published in A Child’s Smile (1944).]


The flowers in my garden
Are like children at their play,
Dancing in the sunshine
And so very bright and gay.
Their eager buds give promise
Of fulfilment yet to be,
And full-bloom adds the beauty
Of their sweet maturity.
So, in Life’s Garden, children bud
And grow each day more fair —
May wisdom show us how to raise
The choicest blossoms there.
