Poem - 

                         Try Again


’Tis a lesson you should heed, 
Try again;
If at first you don’t succeed,
Try again;
Then your courage should appear,
For if you will persevere,
You will conquer, never fear,
Try again.
Once or twice, though you should fail,
Try again;
If you would at last prevail,
Try again;
If we strive ’tis no disgrace
Though we do not win the race;
What should we do in that case?
Try again.
If you find your task is hard, 
Try again;
Time will bring you, your reward,
Try again;
All that other folk can do,
Why, with patience, may not you?
Only keep this rule in view,
Try again.
- W.E. Hickson
