For Violette Noelle - Sprout



The Violet

Down in a green and shady bed,

A modest violet grew;

Its stalk was bent,
it hung its head
As if to hide from view.
And yet it was a lovely flower,
Its colour bright and fair;

It might have graced a rosy bower,
Instead of hiding there.

Yet thus it was content to bloom,
In modest tints arrayed;
And there diffused a sweet perfume,
Within the silent shade.

Then let me to the valley go
This pretty flower to see;
That I may also learn to grow
In sweet humility.

My mommy and Daddy are donating blood today in honor of dear Sprout.

That is really nice of your folks to donate blood today. There is so little most of us can do physically for Sprout's family, but helping someone else in need is a very good way to honor Sprout.
