THE POWER OF LITTLES


Great events, we often find,
  On little things depend,
And very small beginnings
  Have oft a mighty end.

A single utterance may good
  or evil thought inspire;
One little spark enkindled
  May set a town on fire.

What volumes may be written
  With little drops of ink!
How small a leak, unnoticed,
  A mighty ship will sink!

Our life is made entirely
  Of moments multiplied,
As little streamlets, joining
  Form the ocean’s tide.

Our hours and days,
    our months and years,
are in small moments given:
They constitute our time below –
Eternity in heaven
