The Farm of Life

When my work is done on this farm I hope to have sown decent seeds That sprouted more good than harm And yielded more flowers than weeds

Yes, Tim, lets keep the weeds out of our lives, thanks so much for your comment on my poem about my mothers garden and your comments about your grandfathers garden.. I remember my sister used to eat all grandpa's green beans, that sure made him mad...

Yielding "more flowers than weeds" is sometimes the best we can hope to achieve. You're on a roll, Tim! Liked your limerick a lot too. Love, Carolyn

yah thats true you don't really have to make excess returns. if you reach the break even point you didn't make any losses! A nice piece of work

a brilliant ode to a vanishing culture... that is re-emerging as niche-farming with a focus on sustainable, organic nutritious food to help the people, rather than shareholder value...... thanks Tim!
