Big Tree, Little Tree

Pamela Viola
If you can’t be a tree on the
top of the hill
Be a shrub in the valley, but
be
The best little shrub on the
side of the rill.
Be a bush if you can’t be a
tree.
We can’t all be captains -
there’s got to be a crew,
There’s something for all of
us here.
There are big things to do,
and there’s lesser to do
And the task you must do is
the near.
If you can’t be a highway,
then just be a trail.
If you can’t be the sun, be a
star.
It’s not in the job that you win
or you fail
Be the best of whatever you
are.
