I'd Rather Watch a Winner

Edgar Alan Guest

d rather watch a winner, than hear one any day,
I'd rather have him walk with me, than merely show the way.

The eye's a better pupil, more willing than the ear,
Fine counsel is confusing but example's always clear.

The best of all the coaches, are the ones who live their creeds,
For to see the good in action is what everybody needs.

I can soon learn how to do it, if you show me how it's done,
I can watch your hands in action, but your tongue too fast may run.

The lectures you deliver may be very wise and true,
But I'd rather get my lessons by observing what you do.

For I may misunderstand you, and the high advice you give,
But there is no misunderstanding how you act and how you live,

Yes, I'd rather watch a winner, than hear one any day,
I'd rather watch a leader, modeling the way.
