Seeds of Love Poem:
These seeds are here for me and you,
And Mommy, here’s what we can do:
Together we’ll look until we’ve found
A spot to plant them in the ground.
With rain and sunshine, don’t you know,
Our flowers, like our love, will grow.
A precious reminder our flowers will be
That I love Mommy and she loves me!
