Growing Beyond Damage

Seeds are planted in the ground
Covered with fertile soil
Watered by the pouring rain
Growing from the toil

Stems grow up above the earth
Hungry for the shining sun
Dodging the strong winds
That damage in the long run

Petals can be seen at last
Great decor for the eyes
The strength of growing flowers
No damage to their great prize.
