As You Sow So You Reap

As you sow, so you reap
You have no reasons to weep
Over the fruits of your deeds
Apple will not grow from poppy seeds

Do you restrain your child from walk
Lest he might stumble and fall
Don’t you train your baby to talk
Lest he might retort and balk

Emulate the ennobling deeds of sages
Erase the ignoble from your mind’s pages
Educate thyself by the epic heroes’ tale
To elevate your soul without fail

Fantastic expression with marvellous theme.

How the mountains talked together, Looking down upon the weather, nicely written in great artistic patterns
