Never Do Anything Halfway


THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from Sonnet XXXV by William Shakespeare, and suggested by Cressida de Nova: roses, plea, mud, thorns, sins, sense, loathsome, love, canker, bud, thief, sweet

Never do anything halfway
Love someone with all your heart
Things you always have to weigh
You’ve got to be smart to impart

Like sweet roses in the garden
Be careful with their thorns
The sun’s out and life’s fun
Why don’t you plant an acorn?

Check buds for loathsome cankers
They come like thieves in the night
Along the riverbank some amblers
Each one fighting for their plight

Before you tread on muds
Or be tempted to commit sins
Use your judgment, I say with a plea
Don’t do things halfway, that’s the key
