SEEDS OF SWEET NATURE’S FLOWER

Let us collect the seeds of the world,
That future prosperity is preserved,
There are life times in plant-lines curled,
If only the seeds are conserved
Let us unite under the tree of life,
Share the collections we will need,
Or we shall watch accumulating strife,
Cause the magic of life to recede.
Then we will know the reason for war,
The reason for slaughter and fire,
The value of the golden straw…
The hunger of unsatisfied desire.
At our peril this truth we’ll ignore
The seeds of sweet nature’s flower.
