Zen 2nd Verses — Mary, Mary

Mary, Mary, quite contrary
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and cockleshells
And pretty maids all in a row.

Mary Berry, LDS proper
Lived next to the center without calling the cop’r
We raked her leaves and shoveled the walk
And with Mary I always did talk.


A light hearted end to round one of 2nd Verses. Mary was a constant reminder that no matter the ideas and labels one chooses to live by, kindness and decency is the heart of the matter.

May your life go well …
