The Flowers Have Tender Little Souls

Ella Wheeler Wilcox 1855 (Janesville) – 1919



The flowers have tender little souls
That love, rejoice, aspire.
Each star that on its orbit rolls
Feels infinite desire.
The diamond longs to scintillate
When hid beneath the sod.
The universe is animate
With consciousness of God.
