Sweet or sour God is the Creator. Like it or not, He does what's best.

The sour lemon tree

 

A sour lemon tree flower attracts the bee

While its fruit is bitter not so its flower

White is its flower sweet and very pretty

Only the fruit is bitter and that's just a pity

As the beauty of its flower resist not a bee

It's the simple truth

Or, see the sour lemon tree

 

With fruit that is bitter bears a lemon tree

But , useful is its fruit good in everyday use

Once said a bee your flower is very sweet

It carries fragrance cented out in the street

Yet bears you fruit bitter no one wants to eat

It's partly the truth

Or, see the sour lemon tree

 

A citrus tree with fruit no other tree bears

Then out of the tree came a nice neat voice

'Twas like a voice of one who's very wise

This is what it said, trees are not so free

One made a decree for every bearing tree

It's partly the truth

Or, see the sour lemon tree

 

The Creator decides the fruit a tree bears

Whether it be bitter or whether it be sweet

The Creator decrees for every bearing tree

To bring forth fruit ordained for it to bear

Then sweet or bitter bears a tree its fruit

It's the simple truth

Or, see the sour lemon tree.

Nature is such a beautiful thing in one I love. Beauty produces many things and all useful. All supporting us as intended.

Lovely write and wonderful vision for one to observe :)

OFTEN ONE NEVER EVEN APPRECIATES THE SWEETNESS AND BEAUTY OF THE TREE'S FLOWER...SO INTENT ON COMPLAINING ABOUT THE SOURNESS OF THE FRUIT. A WISE METAFORE; 'SWEET' LESSONS CAN BE LEARNED FROM 'SOUR' EXPERIENCES. THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...

Bitter lemons make wonderful lemonade when sugar is added. God never makes a mistake in nature or in people. Thanks for sharing this.
