A Little Lesson on Consequence

 In order to get flowers in our 'gardens' we need to plant them...

Action and word are slick and quick,
Something we may not dwell upon
Until we see how consequence
Goes on and on and on…and on

So then, before we speak or act
We should pause for a little bit
And consider when it is done,
The long, long consequence of it

    1. Thought you might recognize one of your gardens:)

      A watch on my lips, a bridle on my tongue and a Shepherd for my feet, yes!
