Never pick more than you need,Author's Notes
or next year it will not seed.
Do not dig up the fresh cold roots,
or it will not bear all the fruits.
Strip not all the bark from the tree,
leave something for all of us to see.
Take not all the buds from the bushes,
or the sharp heads from the rushes.
Don't pick all the flowers from the trees,
leave some buds for the bees.
Take everything from the lessons you learn,
for knowledge from reciting these words you will earn.
