THE SOW OF LIFE

The Sow of life and the windย 
will reap the whirlwind
one ploughs, another sow
who will reap no one will know
the sow of life when washedย  returns
to the muck the sow of life in tears
shall reap in joy and the sow eats
up all the draff the sow of life it
is to soon to sow yetย 
the sow of life and lost labour
to sow where there is no soilย 
the sow of life will come and goย 
and will be no moreย 
the sow of life

Hi Greg...I am familiar with the expression "one reaps what he sows" but never quite like this!ย  We reap and sow all our lives but without soil I am not sure how one would get any where. Interesting theme for a write, Greg. I see you are trying to be original in your themes. I enjoyed. ox ;)ย  ย

That you should collect what is sown would be lawful and normal, but the reality is very different, there are people who, sowing a lot, never collect anything, and those who do not know how to sow, for some things or others, collect many crops.

Here in relation to the poem we usually say;

"Those who sow storms will fall victim to a great tempest"

A greeting, and congratulations on the composition,
ย

This is great. I love the use of sow in nearly all the sentences. Just works brilliantly! Px
