Subject: RE: Anyone here had to recite?
Well, actually, I memorized this one. You should hear me and my sister recite it together.

A man of words and not of deeds
Is like a garden full of seeds
And when the seeds began to grow
It was like a garden full of snow
And when the snow began to melt
It was like a ship without a belt
And when the ship began to sail
It was like a bird without a tail
And when the bird began to soar
It was like a lion at my door
And when the door began to crack
It was like a penknife in my back
And when my back began to bleed
