One of my favorites!:

Try Try Againby T. H. Palmer
'Tis a lesson you should heed,
If at first you don't succeed,
Try, try again;

Then your courage should appear,
For if you will persevere,
You will conquer, never fear
Try, try again;

Once or twice, though you should fail,
If you would at last prevail,
Try, try again;

If we strive, 'tis no disgrace
Though we do not win the race;
What should you do in the case?
Try, try again

If you find your task is hard,
Time will bring you your reward,
Try, try again

All that other folks can do,
Why, with patience, should not you?
Only keep this rule in view:
Try, try again.

Hello all,

I am in need of a poem/quote about "rigor" that can be shared at a school
assembly. Our kids are k-5. This poem will proceed a talk to the community
about the value of rigor.

Aack. There are some didactic quotes about working hard but I can't find
anything interesting.

thanks for your help,

Maeve
