Petals of golden light I to perceive
This the majesty of the Creator to conceive
What thoughts of love and grace has He
To bring beauty's array, this flower to be
Seeds of light the center does hold
Within, another flower yet to unfold
Gifts upon our Earth, blooms ever sublime
And touched we are by this endowment divine
The Master Gardener in loving grace does sow
A behest in celebration of the sun's light and glow.
