quatrain 1504

Today Sunlight has two versions of quatrain 1504:
Don't sit with a sad person,
Only sit with those who are sweet and kind-hearted.
When you've entered a beautiful garden
   Why spend your time with the weeds?
   Stay with the jasmine and the jonquil.

version by Jonathan Star and Shahram Shiva

i told you don't sit around
with unhappy folks
don't seek the company of any
but those delicious and sweet
when you're in a garden
make your way
around the thorns
seek the company
of narcissus and jasmine
every flower and more
