across this child's face
the light of understanding
sparks a fire
to touch a teacher's heart
lifting fog from yesterday

Teaching what I learnt
From heroes and
The known and
I owe each each of you
Which I know are not
Namaste my gems-
Smashing spread and
light my pen.
Shalom to you all.

causes some road delays.
Summer waves goodbye as fall arrives.
Reluctant children trudge back to school and new lives
Eager first graders will soon be counting by fives.
Older students search for last year’s friends.
The student horde descends
Fun vacation days
will soon become memories
or a backward gaze.
The teachers hope to implant
the love of learning in all.
Today is the opening phase
of educational plan that finds
a path to flexible minds
in new exciting and enticing ways.
The good teacher hopes the change pays
in most significant rewinds
of the student’s study habits and stays.
Lessons will no longer be called grinds.
Children who merely nibble and graze
at lesson their teacher assigns
will sooner or later fall on behinds
and be reasons teachers lose their minds.
The good students are why she stays.

is on a cast iron table
and Mrs Leader's sternness
steps into ready action
