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
