Walk A Little Slower…


Walk A Little Slower…

I came across this poem today as I was sorting through educational materials at school. I read it and thought it relates very nicely to the work we are doing in RDI. We want our children to follow in our footsteps (Master/Apprentice) and we want to walk slow enough so they don’t fall (Framing and Scaffolding). I hope the poem brings a mental image to you of when you were following in your parents footsteps as it did me. Happy Monday!


Walk A Little Slower Daddy

“Walk a little slower Daddy,”
said a child so small,
“I’m following in your footsteps
and I don’t want to fall.

Sometimes your steps are very fast,
Sometimes they’re hard to see;
So walk a little slower, Daddy,
For you are leading me.

Someday when I’m all grown up,
You’re what I want to be;
Then I will have a little child
Who’ll want to follow me.

And I would want to lead just right,
And know that I was true,
So walk a little slower, Daddy,
For I must follow you.”
