The Life Story of Ferron Square
By Peggy Perry

To prove that he wasn’t a cowardly square,
The bold young square took a dangerous dare.
He made a big leap,
Crashed in a heap,
And needed three weeks of hospital care.

Then he became a cautious square
Who did nothing but prepare, prepare.
He planned with care
To go here and there,
But he never quite went anywhere.

As he aged he became a wiser square
With a balanced view that he would share:
“Know when to stop, when to go,
When to say yes, when to say no.
Beware. Take care. But go somewhere.”
