The Little Plant

(From the "Plant Baby and Its Friends.")

“In the heart of a seed,
Buried deep, so deep,
A dear little plant
Lay fast asleep.

‘Wake,’ said the sunshine,
‘And creep to the light,’
‘Wake,’ said the voice
Of the rain-drops bright.

The little plant heard
And it rose to see
What the wonderful
Outside world would be. “
