Before The Baby Learns How To Walk Poem by Francis Duggan

Before The Baby Learns How To Walk



Before the baby learns how to walk the baby must crawl
And what applies to one baby does apply to all
Your first lesson from the book of life began on your life's first day
And from life we never stop learning it does seem this way
Yet from learning from life we have so little time
For the years pass so quickly beyond our lives prime
And the more we do learn the more we realize
That we do know so little this not a surprise
From living experience of life we do gain
But as we age some of the knowledge we accumulated we do not retain
And sadly the know it all people are no longer rare
But of knowledge they seem to have little to share
You may not receive from life what is your due
But that you learn as you live does remain ever true.
