    Whose Child Is This?- Author Unkown

    "Whose child is this?" I asked one day

    Seeing a little one out at play

    "Mine", said the parent with a tender smile

    "Mine to keep a little while

    To bathe his hands and comb his hair

    To prepare him that he may always be good

    And each day do the things he should?"


    "Whose child is this?" I asked again

    As the door opened and someone came in

    "Mine", said the teacher with the same tender smile

    "Mine, to keep just for a little while

    To teach him how to be gentle and kind

    To train and direct his dear little mind

    To help him live by every rule

    And get the best he can from school"


    "Whose child is this?" I ask once more

    Just as the little one entered the door

    "Ours" said the parents and the teacher as they smiled

    And each took the hand of the little child

    "Ours to love and train together

    "Ours this blessed task forever."
