The Little Seed--A Poem for Children

A seed is buried in the ground 

And wonders in the deep,

How long will I be kept down here

And in the soil sleep? 

The farmer pushed me down, down here

He must know what is right

So I will stay tucked in the earth

Where it is always night.

I will stay pressed in the soil

And rest here for awhile,

Until the sunlight wakes me up 

And warms me with her smile.

The rain, it will come too, you know

For that, I also need

Until the plant that’s tucked inside

Breaks from my little seed. 

And yes, yes I, will soon sprout up

To flower in the sun;

The day will wrap her arms ‘round me

The time of darkness done.

--Rebekah Neal
