“Battered Knees and Bones Unbroken,” The Storyteller, 14.4

battered knees and bones unbroken

she march’d back up the gravel slope

three wheels turn, then rolling faster

a steady ride her stubborn hope

scrapes, for each attempt a token

and her perseverance wrought

for her future years unspoken

strength for each new lesson taught
