CUTTER, William

The Value of little things

What if the little rain should say,

"So small a drop as I

Can ne'er refresh the thirsty earth,

I'll tarry in the sky!"

What if a shining beam of noon

Should in its fountain stay,

Because its feeble light alone

Is not enough for day!

Doth not each rain-drop help to form

The cool refreshing shower?

And every ray of light to warm

And beautify the flower?
