Life is a learning curve
spiralling to retrace,
linking between each nerve;
skills, the essential base.

Spiralling to retrace,
building on what is known.
Skills, the essential base,
competence deftly grown.

Building on what is known,
curving an upward track;
competence deftly grown,
even when turning back.

Curving an upward track,
circles advancing still,
even when turning back;
merging new ways with will.

Circles advancing still.
pulsing electric thought.
Merging new ways with will,
practising what is taught.

Pulsing electric thought,
linking between each nerve.
Practising what is taught;
life is a learning curve.
