Quote Garden - Flourish

Flourish the flowers and the tall trees
I'll tell you a story you'll never believe
I met a rich stranger
he came calling on me
we walked through the forest
down by shady grove
now that's where he sleeps

and last winter's storms have swollen the streams
and flooded the pathway
and last winter's storms will cover his tracks
across the wide field

and no one is waiting
none left behind
nobody's waiting to recall
last winter's squall

I cut off two fingers
both shining with gems
and planted them side by side
like two flowering stems
and all through the summer
I been watering them

and last winter's storms have swollen the streams
and flooded the pathway
and last winter's storms will cover our tracks
across the wide field

and no one is waiting
none left behind
no bodies waiting to recall
last winter's squall
