The Big Is in the Little

Inside a tiny acorn,
A seedling to invoke.
With or as if by magic,
Transformed to a mighty oak.

Taking root within the soil,
Seeking the warmth of sun.
Gaining substance from below,
Miracle of miracles has begun!

So too in life, the seeds we sow,
Good deeds that we may do
Little things we do for others
A nourishment to pursue!

Generosity of spirit strengths
Lack of warmth makes brittle.
Give a little—grow each day
For “the big is in the little.”
