Flower In The Desert By Loki
This Happened Many Many Summers Ago


There Was A Young Flower In The Desert Where All Was Dry And Sad Looking
It Was Growing By Itself
Enjoying Every Day
And Saying To The Sun "When Shall I Be Grown Up"?

And The Sun Would Say "Be Patient"
Each Time I Touch You, You Grow A Little"
And She Was So Pleased
Because She Would Have A Chance To Bring Beauty To This Corner Of Sand
And This Is All She Wanted To Do
To Bring A Little Bit Of Beauty To This World

One Day The Hunter Came By And Stepped On Her
She Was Going To Die And She Felt So Sad
Not Because She Was Dying
But Because She Would Not Have A Chance To Bring A Little Bit Of Beauty To This Corner Of The Desert

The Great Spirit Saw Her And Was Listening
Indeed, He Said
She Should Be Living
And He Reached Down
Touched Her And Gave Her Life

And She Grew Up To Be A Beautiful Flower
And This Corner Of The Desert Became So Beautiful Because Of Her
