Sunshine on a Dormant Seed

Once upon a memory A long, long time ago There was a cup of sunshine Buried neath' A winter's snow The dark grey clouds Were threatening And buried long and deep The hopes of spring were Ended, winter days So fettering But then one bright brave Day shown, with message warm And sweet Gold flaming rays of sunshine Touched the day with joy complete Long winters chill was broken If but for a little while And in the cup of sunshine Sleeping seedling felt a smile Snow receded into streams And laughed down brooks of stone Throughout the valley of despair Sweet notes of joy were blown Rapturous song "Awake! Rise up!" Burst forth its glorious power Up from the cup of sunshine Peeked a long and dormant flower The sky's blue eyes of friendship Had a rather merry hue The Sunflower blinked in wonder Nodding, "I remember you!"
