Don't kill the harmless plant,
Don't pull out, except a weed.
The unclean, don't cast on it.
Guard it not to perish,
Only cherish.
For the green is lovely seen,
The ideal, consume,
If it be ailment, employ. 
The herbs are bulbs
That brightens our health.
Let them be! let them be!! 
let nature be!!!
If you must be,
Then they too must be.

    enjoyed reading your the weather was so pretty here I planted some seed and bulbs. I can't wait to see if they bloom and make some plants. I love to plant and watch it grow.

    I love flowers and in the fall I hate to see winter come and the flowers die. How is your arm I hope it is healing and they could reset your bones. I know it must be painful and you are most likely typing with one hand. Get well soon. soup mail mom

    I love this poem, as I am a nature lover and when I see the destruction of nature it is so painful, a well done poem you give to us, now in answer to your question, can I love Pearl Cat as much as the late Peanut Cat, well it seems this heart has room, and did I mention my lovely other cat, named Violet Cat, the prettiest cat in the world~~
