...from Itty-bitty Now, the Then

It matters more than we may think
Those things we think and do and say
Are never ‘nothings’; everything
Becomes a bit of yesterday

…and yesterday, though ever gone
Is never gone in full, its hull
Emptied of seed will suffer long
its consequences ; Time will cull

…from itty-bitty Now, the Then
Where what we think and do and say
Will bear the fruit we planted when
We tossed it thoughtlessly away
