You are delicate yet resilient.
You bend with the wind and the rain in silent submission yet raise your face to the morning sun with delight.
You take no notice of your under-appreciation. While lovers head straight for the regal rose, you wait contentedly for just the right person who needs the joy you bring.
You are beautiful, but simple and humble. You give full credit to your Creator for your beauty and trust Him to meet your needs without toil or worry.
Little carnation flower, I want to be just like you.
