The littlest things

The littlest things

A Poem by Apple Newhouse

              The littlest things are always the biggest things,

                    the littlest candy lasts the longest,

             The littlest people have the biggest of hearts,

              The littlest homes are full of the most love,

             The littlest of all may come in such a small package,

                       but it will bring the biggest smiles.

I wrote this for people and for children to learn that its not always the biggest thats best,the smallest and littlest things can make us happier. In todays society its all about the biggest not the simple and small.

I think it's a good message and also a good poem. Nice.

I love it...mostly because I am a little thing :) I am a runt among giants! But you are right, good things come in small packages. Thank you for the smile, my friend.

I like simple repetition. A simple truth made plain and clear like any good folk singer might :)
