Whimsical Wisdom

Girl with dandelionLearning to Ride My Bike

I tried and fell and tried and then
I tried once more and fell again.
I thought I’d never learn at all.
Each day I’d wobble, then I’d fall.
I couldn’t ever get it right,
Just almost, nearly…but not quite.
Until one day I tried again,
I zigged and zagged and then…and then…
I pedaled once and then once more,
And it was different than before.
I pedaled but I didn’t fall!
Somehow I stayed up straight and tall,
Riding, riding, on two wheels!
And I can tell you how it feels -
On the day I learned to ride,
I felt all strong and big inside.
