"The Little Gardener"


       
   
1.
"I wish I had room for my roots!" said the flow'r;
"All about them so many weeds crowd!
I wish oh I wish there might be a cool show'r,
But the sky has not even a cloud."
       
   
2.
To work in his garden the child quickly ran,
And he pulled ev'ry weed from the bed,
He sprinkled the plants from his brimmin' full can;
Little flow'r did de know what you said?
