Flower for the Day And Hyacinths for the soul 3-17

Hyacinths appeared overnight.

If of thy mortal goods thou art bereft
And of thy simple store two loaves of bread alone are left
Sell one, and with the dole,
Buy hyacinths to feed the soul.

James Terry White (1907) - In celebration of the Persian Poet Sa'adi.
