Do you know how to count to ten
And can you say your ABCs?
Do you know about outer space
And how important are all the trees?
It’s okay if you don’t
For you’ll soon know how to read
And then the world’s an open book
Because of the Education Seed.
First you’ll begin to wonder
Why things are the way they are.
Then will come the questions
Of where you can go and just how far.
You’ll continue to grow and learn
With every book you read,
Always feeding and nourishing
The gift in you– the Education Seed.
