Fallen to us to seed and to grow; given to we two to hold and to home.
Our bitty come tiny come bigger come flown; be sage, be sound, be the best you have known.
Our minikin, silky, part of the zoo; be bigger, be braver, be yours, be you.
Our tumble, our shiny - spark, light up the air; be beacon, be signal, guide, tender, repair.
Our joker, our thiever of every sogged day; be sun on the shadow and shoo grey away.
Our look at me trouper, our stunter, bon mot; be gardener of tales and tell those forgot.
Our held hand, our shadow and stay lay ‘while child; be the keeper and guard of tender time isle.
We builders and holders of the littlest parts; we be yours, you be ours, our wee ones, dear hearts.
