11. Iron enough to make a nail...

These are the things that make a man

Iron enough to make a nail
Lime enough to paint a wall
Water wnough to drown a dog
Sulphur enough to stop the fleas
Potash enough to wash a shirt
Gold enough to buy a bean
Silver enough to coat a pin
Lead enough to ballast a bird
Phosphor enough to light the town
Poison enough to kill a cow;

Strength enough to build a home
Time enough to hold a child
Love enough to break a heart


(Child's rhyme from "Wintersmith" )
