Good Enough [poem by C. J. Dennis]

[Editor: This poem by C. J. Dennis was published in A Book for Kids, 1921.]

Good Enough

I do not think there ever was,
Or ever will, or ever could be,
A little girl or little boy
As good as she or as he should be.

But still, I think, you will agree,
Though perfect very, very few are,
They’re not so bad when “pretty good” —
That’s just about as good as you are.
