gorgeousness. The grass blade is
worthy of the great world where it
grows. Bees sip honey from
flowers and hum their thanks when
they leave. Be still, my heart, these

her flowers. The roots below the
earth claim no rewards for making
the branches beautiful. By plucking
her petals one cannot gather the
beauty of the flowers. Let my
service be the service of the
leaves in its shade of humble
