I'm desperately looking for the name and author of a poem that ends ..... but be the best little pine this side of the hill!

Douglas Malloch

If you canít be a pine at the top of the hill,

Be a shrub in the valley Ė

But be the best little shrub this side of the hill;

Be a bush if you cannot be a tree.

If you canít be a highway then just be a trail,

If you canít be the sun, be a star;

It isnít by size that you win or you fail Ė

Be the best at whatever you are!
