Raspberry Vine

God bless the honey bee
Spends all day making life sweeter
Spends all day with his face in a flower
Does good work but he carries a dagger

Go gently with me...

God bless the summer rain
Brings the hard dry ground to life
Paints the mountains in baby greens
But it floods the river and tears out the trees

Go gently with me...

God bless a new-found love
As tangled as a raspberry vine
Red ripe fruit, waiting to be plucked
But the little green thorns will take you by surprise
The little green thorns take you by surprise
Still, a berry on the tongue beats a bushel in your mind

Go gently with me...

A berry on the tongue beats a bushel in your mind
