Tortoise

Dianne_Bennett_tortoise_small-

You may not catch up with the hare-
But the hare will not see how beautiful
Everything in this life is.
The hare will not enjoy how fast it can run
How strong its legs are.
The hare will not know the earth under its feet
is full of plants and worms to keep it alive.
But you will- and it will make you
the most powerful tortoise on earth.
