Small Packages

Have you ever picked a cherry off a tree And paused to really look To notice color, deep and red Or pale stem’s gentle curve?

Then popped it in your waiting mouth, And felt the flavor burst As teeth chew ’round the cherry stone Then cast it to the earth.

And if it happens as the sun shines down on your face, Or if you share a second one Spreading the sweet taste, Realize you’ve experienced One of God’s small packages If you’ve even had but one, Then He has given much.
