"What Spirit Told The Gardener"

Who was it who said that flowers
    couldn't sing ?
Maybe they should have their 
    hearing checked...

No matter how small or
    oddly shaped,
There's never been a flower who couldn't
    pass the audition.

And no matter how peculiar their
    color might appear,
No flower has ever missed the
    song of the wandering
    Humming Bird.

The last thing that 
    Spirit told the Gardner was
"Make sure those flowers
    really sing through their stems,
    like a microphone.
We love the feedback!"
