The seed of love (poem)

An angel paused in his onward flight, with a seed of love and truth and right, And said, “Oh, where can this seed be sown
That it yields more fruit when fully grown?”
“To whom can this precious seed be given, that it bears more fruit for earth and heaven?” The Savior heard and said as He smiled “Place it at once in the heart of a child.”
The angel whispered the blessed truth, to a weary teacher of precious youth; His face grew bright with heavenly light, as he led their thought in the way of right.
