Illustration by CATHERINE STRAUS
A wonderful thing is a seed—
The one thing deathless forever;
Forever old and forever new,
Fickle and faithless never.
Plant lilies and lilies will bloom,
Plant roses and roses will grow,
Plant hatred and hatred to life will spring;
Plant love and love to you will bring
The fruit of the seed you sow.
—Belle Paxson Drury
