Oh, so charming! I can just picture the illustrations for this poem in a children's book. The words would be wonderful for children to read, too, with the easy flow and rhyme.

I love it...you're such a scaredy plant. Cute!

Perfect!
What a wonderful, encouraging poem for children. One thing - the last stanza starts out plural and ends singular. Easy to fix. But this is really a fun read and very strong on God's protection.
This is so precious. I love it and would love to see it with beautiful, colorful illustrations.

I loved this line:
Viola’s mother said to her,
“You’re such a scaredy plant.

Great job!

I love it when a word such as fearful can be written in so many creative ways. To write from the perspective of a plant is inspiring to me and beautiful. I can see it illustrated. I want to see more children's books like this for my grandchildren.. Great writing..! Dianne

Thanks for the precious, true reminder that God is with us all the way and made each of us to "bloom where we're planted". Great job!
Oh, my! What a precious and perfectly written poem! I know you wrote it with children in mind, but this adult was abundantly blessed by it! ;) Absolutely wonderful!!
This is indeed precious. And a good lesson for adults, as well.

What a sweet poem and message for little ones. The flow was so easy to read. I could just picture a child reading it and smiling. Very nice! I'll read it to my grandkids someday when I have them.
