The Firefly and the Watermelonby David C. Brand
The firefly shows off his light
in darkness while engaged in flight.
And to an engineer's chagrin
he never has to plug it in.
The watermelon so good to eat,
to one and all a special treat--
I wonder how it got so sweet,
in dirt t'accomplish such a feat.
The firefly did not attend
a class in electricity.
The watermelon from end to end
had never studied chemistry.
'Tis God who gave the firefly light
to dazzle children in the night.
God designed the watermelon sweet
to grow so big from seed so small
And young and old enjoy this treat
Though they will never know it all!
