Be The Best You Can Be
If you can't be a pine on the top of the hill,
Be a scrub in the valley-but be
The best little scrub by the side of the rill;
Be a bush if you can't be a tree.
If you can't be a bush, be a bit of the grass;
Some highway some happier make.
If you can't be a muskie, then just be a bass,
But the liveliest bass in the lake.
We can't all be captains; we've got to be crew;
There's something for all of us here.
There's big work to do and lesser to do,
And the task we must do is the near.
If you can't be a highway, then just be a trail;
If you can't be the sun, be a star;
It isn't by size that you win or you fail-
Be the best of whatever you are.
by Douglas Malloch
North Otago Times, 15 September 1896, Page 1 ORIGINAL POETRY.
Oh ! the happiest days of all our life
Were the days when we were at school ;
When we were free from worldly strife,
And obeyed the teacher's rule.
Those were the times I remember with joy,
The times that will ne'er come again ;
When many a man was then a boy,
Well used to the strap and the cane.
We learnt our tasks with a will every day,
The harder they were, the harder we worked ;
And we never once heard our teacher say
That the work he gave us we over shirked.
Our spelling, grammar, history, all we knew,
Our reading, geography, and sums of all sorts —
And after we'd finished what we had to do,
We ended the day with schoolboy sport.
At cricket and football our play hours we , spent
In the heat of the day or the cool of the eve ;
And these and other pastimes a pleasure lent
To the school and grounds we were loth to leave.
Full well I remember our teacher's smile
As he met us at the door in the morning
And his pleasant talk as we traced the Nile
On the maps, the school walls adorning.
But past and gone are all those joys,
We sigh for them in vain ;
The happy days when we were boys
We ne'er shall see again.
J. GALLAGHER. Kakanui, September 10th, 1896.
