sown the wind : reap the whirlwind

For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: it hath no stalk: the bud shall yield no meal: if so be it yield, the strangers shall swallow it up. (Hosea 8:7)

It says in an ancient book
that though you may sow with tears
you will reap with shouts of joy

but here

the reaping
the weeping
