I’m Owlie the Owl, many see me as wise,
I see the way things are going, I watch with both my heart and my eyes.
Sometimes I share stories, some are silly, but most are true.
The story I have today is an experience had by only a few.
There once was a small garden, in a back yard is where it grew.
It was tended by a little girl, her great-grandpa showed her what to do.
Together they planted this garden some plants were started from seeds,
others started from potted plants; the girl tended the daily watering needs.
The little girl liked watching how all the different plants would do.
She saw onions, carrots, and potatoes hid from the sun ,
while cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower grew to be seen by everyone.
The great-grandpa liked watching everything that grew.
You see plants weren’t all that grew in the garden the precious child grew too.
Purpose, responsibility, and patience along with knowledge, confidence and grace.
He’d answer all of her questions, with a sparkle in his eye and a smile on his face.
So there you go my friendly readers, a story experienced by few,
about a child and her great-grandpa in a garden, that loved each other through and through!
I am Owlie the Owl, here to remind you it is wise,
to seek God’s goodness in all things, with a grateful heart and watchful eyes.
