Nurture these Little Ones


They are all different, all born different.

Such wondrous, endless variety!


Some greet you with a blank, disbelieving stare --
the vacant look of the tabula rasa,
and an unhurried personality yet to arrive.


Others well and truly have your measure,
their keen little peepers revealing the insight
of a future assignment they cannot yet divulge.


These are the little ones who must be
inspired, quickened, encouraged and nourished,
not squeezed into regulation size moulds.


They are meant to be allowed to dream up
their own “missions” of mortal evolutionary life.

And we may only

nurture these Little Ones
