What Part Had She in the Daffodils?

Two gentle hands
set to the work
digging and planting
get covered with dirt

small clumps of life
nestled in earth
sheltered from storms
yearning for birth

'til the warm springtime sun
reaches below
calls them from slumber
tells them to grow

bright yellow blossoms
break from the green
show forth their glory
pleasures are seen

from whence did that glory
sprung from the ground
have its beginnings
from whence came its crown?

'twas the light from above
and two gentle hands
that set forth the bulbs
and caused them to stand

for light give I thanks
light from on high
and for two gentle hands
blessed am I.
