A Seedlings Song Submitted by Florence
I am only now a seedling planted with hands so very young
I have but just one wish, to reach and touch the sun
My little leaves are fragile, my stem is very new
My roots can barely hold me up, but you can help me through.

I need only a few things, to keep me alive and well
Some water, love and sunshine, Then time will surely tell.
If my leaves look kind of droopy, something to drink will do the trick
And feed me a little fertilizer, to prevent me from getting sick.

This pot I live in now is a temporary hold;
I'll need to be replanted, as I will soon grow old.
The hardest thing to do my friend is to sit and watch and wait
For the wonderful surprise I'll bring, Please be patient and have faith

For your effort, love and support will all be over soon;
Visit me in a month or two and I'll reward you with a bloom.
But please don't cut me down I can surprise you once again,
Let me finish my flower and seed and next year, I'll be back my friend.
