Whose child is this?" I asked one day 

Seeing a little one out at play                               

"Mine", said 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 smile

"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 ask 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."
