TRUE NATUREóBy W. S. Haskell

True nature never was confined,

To petals, dew, and shower;

True nature is the vital mind,

That dwells in every flower.

The occupant, not just the cot,

The soul, and not the shape;

In fact, the potter, not the pot,

The God, and not the ape.

____________

Who would not have his footsteps show

Must walk in neither mud nor snow.

óChinese Proverb.
