Patience

By Anna M. Pratti_230d

If a string is in a knot,
Patience will untie it.
Patience can do many things—
Did you ever try it?

If it was sold at any shop
I should like to buy it.
But you and I must find our own—
No other can supply it.

    Hello,

    I just discovered your delightful blog and would like to share a song that I found in a children’s song book from the 1920’s. It’s called “The Hippopotamus and Me” and it presents an interesting change of perspective when the child looking at the hippo wonders “what he thinks of me”. It was a favorite of my children when they were small – and still is. If you like, I can send it as a pdf of the words and music.

    Best Wishes,
    KH
