Undisciplined is the heart.
Like a puppy,
Eager to please,
Wiggling its way in and out,
Comingling joy and sorrow
Feelings ARE good.
But never secure “the good”.
Hearts ARE essential.
But, let’s avoid placing them ‘in charge’.

What a sweet visual this evokes, and so true. And yes, they should NOT be in charge! 😉
Glad to hear from you! Thanks!
Wise advice. Best not to lead with the heart.
Oh yes! Don’t ever put them in charge! Wonderful poem!
😁 Your 3 exclamation marks made my heart happy.
I like the poem but a heart loves what it loves and tethering or caging it will have ill-effect upon the owner of it.
Just don’t put it in charge. It can roam, and play, and wonder, all it wants. No limitations are recommended. 😉
In that case, I feel better about the puppy 🙂
Such beautiful, visceral, and wise advice. It’s always good to let the brain be captain–if the heart is, we may not see clearly the path or what we may overlook. Extremely well said!
Your praise has made me blush, Lucy. Thank-you!
The last few lines ring true. Enjoyed your quardille.
Much appreciated. 😊
This has all the wit and wisdom of sound experience. Loved it!
Thanks. I somehow knew you’d understand. 😉❤
Placing the heart in charge can have some benefits too.
It would be a sorry thing not to listen to our hearts, Sadje.
But allowing them to be “in charge”, isn’t any wiser than leaving a puppy totally unsupervised. That never ends well. 😉
Probably a balance between the mind and the heart is better
Actually, that’s the message here. 😉
A heart is difficult to control, but it ha to be!!
It certainly needs the discipline of thought for our own protection. 😊 Thanks!
this is a wise quadrille. 🙂
My heart and head each appreciate your comment. 😉❤
You make a good point with this quadrille: the undisciplined heart can lead us into trouble!
I like the heart-puppy comparison. Don’t put either in charge, but do let them play. 😀
Excellent. Certainly we need their influence unencumbered!
Yes, indeed. 😀
Excellent. Yes… let’s avoid placing them ‘in charge’.
Susan, this poem is pure truth – pure and simple. I so agree with your message.
That pleases me, David. Thank-you!
The image you shared made me smile … as did your quadrille.
😊 Smiles all around then. Thank-you kindly!
Oh, I liked this. Wonderful poem, but a great message driven home in the last line.
So happy to hear that! Thank-you!
Easier said than done. A wonderful poem!
Indeed… you have to put the puppy on a leash
So well said! We need to balance.
Thank-you! I appreciate you reading and commenting.
You are welcome.
I love the duality, delightful crafting of both a celebration of our emotions while reminding us to not let it rule us. I admit that the concession of taking the goods with the bads was particular powerful. Delicious stuff!
I’m humbled and happy to hear from you!
