A Teacher’s Student-days...


In school, I was a student good,
And did all that a student should –
Learning, reading, playing with zeal,
and enjoying my mother’s meal.

I loved the English language much;
My mother’s words were fairy’s touch;
I did my pupil’s duties well;
My school-years turned out to be swell!

God was right in my heart always;
I was given a Christian base;
I was a talented youth then,
with wisdom first, and second, ken.

I never knew the world so vile;
I studied hard in my own style;
God blessed me well, seeing my heart;
I did all things with love and art.

If God is placed as prime in life,
Our days on earth can deal with strife;
The grace of God can wonders do,
and drink we can heavenly dew!

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
