Prayer of the Late Bloomer

Chrysanthemum: Dance

Lord of all Seasons,
In my youth I wished myself tulip
Then even daffodil
But I am really chrysanthemum,
Flowering in my autumn;

See my shoots, my leaves
All green!
I may not be exquisite, but
I am flowering at last, Lord,
For You!

Rooted in You
Absorbing my needs
My greening was due!

May I, Lord,
All autumnal floral
Grace thy table
And winter with thee?
