January 10

Happy birthday to me
Paper whites are pushing out,
from russet bulbs a top round stones.

Lengthy shoots which grow each day
an inch or more as if to say,

Look at me! I will be tall
my stems are growing after all!

My blooms will be as white as snow,
and prettier than a Christmas bow!

The beauty of these gorgeous flowers,
will be cherished by us for hours and hours.

It’s been our pleasure to have a role
in helping these wonderful flowers grow.

We know that we are assistants of
God’s creation and unfailing love .
