A Wise Kindergarten Teacher

They were confident
 as they added their flowers, 
hearts and stars.

They were the dreamers, 
the doers, the artists, the doers, 
and they were mighty.

Their teacher was delighted, 
she gave them the pats and
hugs they sought.

Her words of encouragement 
gave them the bonus
 they needed, the love they were after.

They left for the summer, 
knowing they were the smartest children
 who ever were.

They were the mighty, 
magical, magnificent kindergarteners, 
thanks to a wise and loving teacher.

Once awhile ago I heard a story that when the kindergarten students were asked "who is an artist?" They ALL put up their hands, unfortunately, by third grade, when the same group was asked, only two students put up their hands. I wrote this in honor of the good teachers and this story. We have to be SO careful; what we say to our children matters whether we are a parent or a teacher.
