St. Francis And The Sow Comments

Rating: 2.9
The bud
stands for all things,
even those things that don't flower,
for everything flowers, from within, of self-blessing;

I can accept the stunning beauty of flowers, but I have trouble seeing anything attractive about a sow. These animals revel in mud and dirt, and even St. Francis cannot redeem that. The saint was not always right.
