“Its rather dark in the Earth today”,
Said one little bulb to his brother,
“But I thought that I felt a sunbeam say,
We must strive and grow till we find the way”,
And they nestled close to each other.
Then they struggled and toiled by day and night
Till two little snowdrops in green and white
Rose out of the darkness and into the light
And softly kissed one another.
