The Quarrel

            It is common for brothers and sisters to quarrel, although sometimes they may not even be able to say why they quarrel. But how long do such quarrels last? How do they end?

                    I quarreled with my brother
                    I don’t know what about.
                    One thing led to another
                    And somehow we fell out.
                    The start of it was slight,
                    The end of it was strong,
                    He said he was right,
                    I knew he was wrong!

                    We hated one another,
                    The afternoon turned black,
                    Then suddenly my brother
                    Thumped me on the back,
                    And said, “Oh, come along!
                    I was in the wrong.”
                    So he was in the right.

                                                                       Eleanor Farjeon
