Word to the Unwise

umbrella rain

On the search for love? Muzzle your passion. If you feel affection blossoming, act like you don’t care, lest you scare your fragile dream away with an emotional display. Flit and mingle, flower to flower, like a delirious butterfly. Keep your feelings quiet, battened down like petals in the rain.
