"Oft, in the sunny mornings, have I seen
  Bright yellow birds, of a rich lemon hue,
Meeting in crowds upon the branches green,
  And sweetly singing all the morning through;
And others, with their heads grayish and dark,
  Pressing their cinnamon cheeks to the old trees,
And striking on the hard, rough, shrivelled bark,
  Like conscience on a bosom ill at ease.

"And diamond-birds chirping their single notes,
  Now ’mid the trumpet-flower's deep blossoms seen,
Now floating brightly on with fiery throats--
  Small winged emeralds of golden green;
And other larger birds with orange cheeks,
  A many-color-painted, chattering crowd,
Prattling forever with their curved beaks,
  And through the silent woods screaming aloud."

If nothing we do matters, then all that matters is what we do. The smallest act of kindness can be the greatest thing in the world.
