POEMS: “What if the little rain should say”


“What if the little rain should say”


What if the little rain should say
‘So small a drop as I
Can ne’er refresh the thirsty field
I’ll tarry in the sky.’

What if each shining beam of noon
Should in its fountain stay
Because its feeble light alone
Could not create a day

Doth not each rain-drop help to form
The cool refreshing showers?
And every ray of light to warm
And beautify the flowers?

And thus the good each child may do
Is help to all the rest
Then let us active be and true
And do our little best


William Cutter
