Failure

By Amos Russel Wells

Failure is a rocky hill:
Climb it! Climb it with a will!
Failure is a broken bone:
Set it! Grin, and do not groan!
Failure is a tangled string:
Puzzle out the knotted thing!
Failure is a river swift:
Swim it! Swim, and do not drift!
Failure is a black morass:
Cross it! There are tufts of grass!
Failure is a treacherous pit:
Scramble! Clamber out of it!
Failure is an inky night:
Sing! Expect the morning light!
Failure is an ugly coal:
Fuse it to a diamond soul!
