Little Things

Illustration for poems for kids Little Things by Ebenezer Cobham Brewer
The passing of time is made of many tiny minutes...
Little Things

Little drops of water,
Little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean
And the pleasant land.
Thus the little minutes,
Humble though they be,
Make the mighty ages
Of eternity.
