Summer Blooms and Autumn Leaves
On the tree of life,
Good name is like summer blooms
Though often hidden by the leaves,
They are spotted by their scent
And may yield fruits in clusters!
But quick fame is like autumn leaves
Which turn auburn and brown
They wither away at the slightest wind
And cry in raspy sound
When crushed under the feet
So hasten! Let us not defer
To gather that which will endure!
