A Teacher’s Student-Days... - Poem by Dr John Celes

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!
