John Wooden, the poet laureate of reason, kindness and decency

A meeting was held quite far from earth:

"It's time again for another birth,"

Said the angels to the Lord above.

"This special child will need much love.

"His progress may seem very slow,

"Accomplishments he may not show,

"And he'll require extra care

"From the folks he meets way down there.

"He may not run or laugh or play,

"His thoughts may seem quite far away.

"In many ways he won't adapt,

"And he'll be known as handicapped.

"So let's be careful where he's sent.

"We want his life to be content.

"Please, Lord, find the parents who

"Will do a special job for you.

"They will not realize right away.

"The leading role they're asked to play.

"But with this child sent from above,

"Come stronger faith and richer love.
