Either anticipated, or scorned
To the pessimist, they are dwindling,
And to the bright eye—they carry on beyond our selfish minds

Wispy sunlight
Resisting gives way
To cold dark skies
And hurling winds

Reap real reward.

A Teacher should have Teacher-like Qualities
They sit gossiping

Abused his pupils in
