    "Whose child is this?" I asked one day
    Seeing a little one out at play
    "Mine,"Saide the parent with a tender smile
    "Mine to keep a little while
    To bathe his hands and comb his hair
    To tell him what he is to wear
    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 simle
    "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 asked once more
    Just as the little one entered the door
    "Ours," said the parent 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."
