The First Ever Teachers

The first ever teachers now idle at the entrance, with feet benumbed. Drunk with feelings and wisdom being ebbed, they fly lies, he said – not me. Crowned with thorns, wearing briers and clenching our rags HOME we left. Shelters mocked at us and insults rained on us; here, we stand again but at the entrance. Shall we rush into the class as a troop and sprinkle emotions on the withering plants. 02/08/2020

A touching moment, poignantly expressed, Newton. Kindergarten is what I'm seeing, or little ones' first day at school.

Thank you so much for your visit and this great comment, Sigrid!! I feel I have been humbled. We may interpret it as the little ones' first day at school. I personally meant students generally and incorporating emotions into education through poetry.
