A Window into Life in the Suburbs

"Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these." Luke 12:27 (NIV)

A gentle blow
Breathes the little glassy orb to life
Sparkling in the sunlight's glow
Bobbing, dancing down so low

Hands and feet, no match it seems
For the jolly orb that gleams

So fleeting is its frangible life
Here one moment and gone the next.

They come... they come..
Then they grow
And then too soon... they will go

Playful sounds fill the air
Little eyes search and stare
Happy thoughts fill eager minds
Hands and feet a song will find
