Poems of Home: II. For Children
Try Again
Anonymous
 
’T IS a lesson you should heed,
      Try, try, try again;
If at first you don’t succeed,
      Try, try, try again.
 
Once or twice though you should fail,        5
      Try again;
If you would at last prevail,
      Try again.
If we strive, ’t is no disgrace
Though we may not win the race;        10
What should you do in that case?
      Try again.
 
If you find your task is hard,
      Try again;
Time will bring you your reward,        15
      Try again.
All that other folks can do,
With your patience should not you?
Only keep this rule in view—
      Try again.        20
