A little boy takes three faltering steps,
At one year old he is learning to walk,
What a clever little fellow he is.
A young athlete receives a gold trophy,
Loud cheers are heard as he holds it aloft,
He has just won first prize in the long jump.
An ageing man leans on his walking stick,
He must rely on the walking stick now.
Once he could jump further than all of them
