Small little sweet successes


Minister cut the ribbon to declare
The highway across the sea
Dedicated to public use
Congratulated the project team
On this great success
Really speaking it is the culmination
Of small little sweet successes
That occurred over a period of time
All along the project period
It may be a small drawing
May be a complicated calculations
May be the right mix of bonding materials
If a car coming out of assembly line is a success
It is all because
Of small little sweet successes
That occurred over a period of time
All along the assembly line
It may be just spot welding of a handle
May be pushing in a seating cushion
May be a tightening of a bolt
No big success is possible
Without small little sweet successes
Occurring at regular intervals
And one little success
Paving way for the next small one
Thus while celebrating an accomplishment
Big or small
Thankfully we need to look back to those
Small little sweet successes
Which all combined to reach
This final stage of large success
Let us know how to identify
Those small steps that help us
Reach a height
And let us celebrate each
Small little sweet successes

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
