Sower went
Sowed seed
Some fell
On paths
Trampled underfoot
Birds devoured
Some fell
Rocky terrain
Grew quick
Withered away
Some fell
Among thorns
Grew up
Choked out
Some fell
Good soil
Abundant growth
Hundred Fold

Soul soil
Softened heart
Word seed
Planted deep
Yielded Crop
Sower pleased
With soul
