Did you ever take from off the beach

A single grain of sand

About these ads

And wonder if that tiny grain

Be a small mysterious land,

A land that to the human eye

Could never once be seen

Although to us invisible

To someone else a dream

A dream of grass and trees so green

About these ads

Of sky and oceans blue

A dream that the beholder

Hopes someday will come true

This someone else who holds this dream

Is not from our great land

But from this tiny little grain

You're holding in your hand
