In the creation of the Lord Almighty FLOWERS indeed
Are the wonderful most- in different colors, shapes and hues,
All over the world and all over the seasons and parts
Of the year filling the hearts with Heavenly feelings!
Morning times with the cool breeze pervading give all the bliss!
In the ozone layer to enjoy that bliss one should be blessed!
