Sowers


We must not hope to be mowers,
And to gather the ripe and gold ears,
Unless we have first been sowers
And watered the furrows with tears.


It is not just as we take it,
This mystical world of ours,
Life's field will yield as we make it
A harvest of thorns or of flowers.

~JohannWolfgang von Goethe

Simple flowers in mason jars are the best of all. Happy Mother's Day to you.
