POEM


Here is another short poem from my old book of poetry.
And how true it is!

* * * * * *

OUR LIPS AND EARS

If you your lips would keep from slips ,
Five things observe with care:
Of whom you speak,to whom you speak,
And how and when and where.



 
If you your ears would save from jeers,
These things keep meekly hid:
Myself and I, and mine and my,
And how I do and did.
                                          Unknown


 

Great meaning in just a few words!

Blessings on all!
Love,
    Shirley
