Being Far

This poem is dedicated to Korean students studying English online.

When I call, you say 'Hello'
When I ask, 'How are you?
You answer me, 'I'm fine. Thank you.'
That's what I always do especially for you.

Being far to teach you online
I'm so happy when you tell me you're fine
To learn about English
Is always what I really wish...for you.

English is fun and easy to learn
Even if it is hard for you to mean
Sooner or later you'll enjoy to speak
The language as you know it very quick.

I'm glad to be your teacher
Though we are far from each other
I'm happy that you're my student
To teach you is my best compliment!

Good luck and good job
These things I always tell you
Everytime I say goodbye for my call
I know you learned something at all!

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
