“Which Came First?” by Toni Newell

Leave a comment



It started out as a seed,

And slowly put down roots.

Then struggled to reach the top,

By sending up a shoot.

It pushed its head above the ground,

And then it grew more leaves,

Produced a lot of flowers,

Which attracted many bees.

It grew to become a plant,

Bearing fruit which housed the seeds,

And thus, the cycle continues,

But what precedes?

Did the seed come before the plant?

Or the plant before the seed?

It’s a question that’s been asked before,

And will be asked again, indeed.
