"The Desire To Read" by Sandra du Plessis

To share all knowledge is our need
the wonder of the human brain;
it's always ready to be trained
reacts on what we learn with speed.

The child has great desire to read
the words he learns become a chain;
to share all knowledge is our need
the wonder of the human brain.

Repeat each lesson to succeed
and soon will know what was obtained;
this wisdom grasp for life remains
each story comes alive indeed
to share all knowledge is our need.
