First there was a seedling

That was planted in the evening.

The ground was very dry

Then the sky began to cry

There was a beautiful new birth

When a bit of green sprouted through the earth.

The flower bloomed so pretty

But it would only last a little bitty.

Winter came through

And wiped out all the new bloom
