Beautiful poem

Friendship Garden

Plant three rows of peas:
Peas of mind…Peas of heart…Peas of soul

Plant four rows of squash:
Squash gossip…Squash indifference…
Squash grumbling…Squash selfishness.

Plant four rows of lettuce:
Lettuce be faithful…Lettuce be kind…
Lettuce be happy…Lettuce love one another.

No garden should be without turnips:
Turnip for service when needed.
Turnip to help one another.
Turnip the music and dance.

A garden must have some thyme:
Thyme for God…Thyme for study…Thyme for prayer…
Thyme for rest…Thyme for fun…Thyme for yourself.

Water freely with patience
and cultivate with love.
There will be much fruit in your garden
Because you reap what you sow.
