Root and All

Little flower,
but if I could understand what you are,
root and all in all,
I should know what God and man is.
~  Tennyson

Am I root, or am I bud?
Am I stem or am I leaf?
All in all, this is not me
but the merest image
of God’s fruiting glory.

I am but the tears shed
as He broke
into blossom.
