A flower is a smile of God,
A distant echo of heaven,
A single, fleeting note
Of God's own music,
A perfectly-formed note
In his all-making harmony,
A voice full of mystery, dear Saviour,
That sings of your great power:
   Infinitely melodious,
   Sweetly harmonious
Silence of flowers,
Telling God in his grandeur.

-- St. Therese of Lisieux (trans. Felicity Leng)
