I recited this poem in a competition when I was in Class 1 or so, and I got the first prize.Hope you will like it! 

Tis a lesson you should heed,
Try, try again;
If at first you don’t succeed,
Try, try again;
Then your courage should appear,
For if you will persevere,
You will conquer, never fear:
Try, try again.

Once or twice though you should fail,
Try, try again.
If you would at last prevail,
Try; try again;
If we strive, ‘tis no disgrace
Though we do not win the race;
What should you do in the case?
Try; Try again.

If you find your task is hard,

Try, try again; 

Time will bring you your reward,

Try, try again;

All that other folks can do,
Why, with patience, should not you?

Only keep this rule  in view


Thomas H. Palmer (1782 – 1861)
