Writing Letters

Every time I write a letter,
If I do not write too fast,
It is sure to be a better,
Neater letter than the last.

We are very little creatures,
All of different voices and features;
One of us in glass is set.
One of us you'll find in jet.
T'other you may see in tin.
And the fourth a box within.
If the fifth you should pursue,
It can never fly from you.

Kind Deeds

Little drops of water,
Little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean,
And the pleasant land.

This the little minutes,
Humble though they be
Make the mighty ages
of eternity.

Little deeds of kindness,
Little words of love,
Make this earth an Eden
Like the heaven above.

by Isaac Watts
