I am small tonight

Hi everyone,

I found this on a piece of paper from 3rd grade (February 1969). Does anyone recognize the author?


I am small tonight
And heaven is far
Only God and I
And the Evening Star
The perfumed breath
From the heart of a rose
Whispers to me:
He cares! He knows!

I think I was practicing my penmanship. After all these years this little poem somehow touches my heart.

Thanks to any super-sleuths! A search on the internet proved fruitless.

Helen, check first with the school, or catechism leader you may have had then. Librarians are great for things like this.

My guess is that it's from a catechism/Sunday school book of some sort.
