The Little Seed

The little seed,
so small and round.
As small as a bead, 
It falls to the ground. 

Under the dirt, 
A sprout grows. 
Within the earth, 
Up and up it goes. 

It breaks through, reaching for the sky. 
Rising, thin and green. 
He will grow to be a big guy. 
Now he can be seen! 

From now on, he’ll tower. 
At this, He won’t fail. 
He might even grow a flower. 
His life is no tall tale. 

Like the Little Seed, 
You'll never stay down! 
If whatever the deed, 
You do it without a frown.
