The Papa Chrysanthemum Story
Oh Papa Chrysanthemum,
comparable to none, you alone are the one,
for your splendor cannot be outdone.
O ancient one, here since time begun,
many tales through the ages have been spun.
Timeless like the tides and sun, your spell will never be undone.
In both day and tree light you shine, a sublime gift sent down from the divine.
When out of sight we sigh and pine, awaiting the next Christmas time,
when you will be near all the time.
