Small Things

by Mandy Doerr

Big things are impressive,
And often expensive,
But my heart holds only small things.
Do not mistaken me,
For it is very large,
But the entrance is small.

A twelve-inch butterfly would make me marvel,
But a regular butterfly would give me more pleasure,
And a tiny one I would treasure forever.

A Great Deed would gain my admiration,
But a small one, truly meant, would win my heart.
Small things stay in my heart forever.
