The Bulbs are Ready for Bed
"Where flowers bloom so does hope."
- Lady Bird Johnson, Public Roads: Where Flowers Bloom
Goodnight little bulbs in the earth;
don't worry if you get a little cold before your birth.
In the fall and winter you will rest well;
and arrive in the spring and summer like the ringing bells!
Colorful little ones that sleeps in the dark,
your amazing beauty makes a mark.
Smells and sights that bring joy to the streets
in our souls and down to our feets!
So rest well and we will pray for you;
we know it takes a bunch of time,
for you to do what you need to do.
We will have hope as the snow and cold wind blows,
for your glory will truly grow!
- Laura Evonne Steinman
Do you plant bulbs in the autumn time near your home, school, neighborhood?
Why do we do this?
Who does it effect?
