GIVE AND TAKE

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

*********************************************
GIVE AND TAKE
(Taken from “Flashes of Light”
by Randall Butisingh)

The little flower opened with the sun’s kiss.
The bee came, took a drop of nectar and
left some pollen.  The butterfly and the
humming bird came, each took and gave
in return.  Man came; he plucked the flower.
The flower perfumed the cruel hand, wilted
and died.
