In Shallow Pond

Minnow minnow swim and hide
Go where large birds cannot dive
Congregate in shallow pond
The larger fish will swim aground.
Protect yourself until your grown
And realize while on your own
There's much to watch, before you take
The one big splash to open lake
Allow the time allotted you
Each stage of life restores, renews.

You have such a gift! I, especially, like the last line. It applies to all living things! I think I needed a reminder of that! Thank you!

ahh tis I loved! this is a self-help-poem. so elegantly, peacefully contrived, so this tells me where ever I go, this might be wrong and best I stay with myself and find the strength in dealing with my problem. sweet and cute poem, it is a one for everyone.
