The Twig

tís true that, "as the twig is bent, so grows the branch", my friend,
And all we do and say affects the children that we "bend"!

We all must guide the little ones, so when you get the chance,
Please be very careful how you "start" that little branch.

The end result means everything, and when the "small" is "big,"
Youíll learn the true importance of the way you bent the "twig"!
