"Blessings that Fall" by Elizabeth Grimes
A simple bush, with leaves of green
Sat under blossoms of a cherry tree.
When the branches shook, the petals would fall
Onto the bush with no flowers at all.
A passerby exclaimed of the bush,
“I’ve never seen one with flowers so lush!”
His friend said to him, “No, look up higher.
It’s the falling petals whose beauty inspires.
The bush is not special, like you and me.
The Lord’s blessings fall and cause us to be.”
