Teacher’s Day Poem (A Pot Pourri)

They help us strive for goals;
They give us model roles;
They are such superb souls;
That help sprout ‘student-poles’!

Most teachers teach us well;
We have no words to tell;
Sometimes, they even yell,
When we can’t rightly spell.

A gentle pat on back;
A simple word or whack;
Most teachers know the knack,
To find out what we lack.

They show us how to write;
They tell us what is right;
They taught all to be bright,
No matter what our plight.

And some talk about life;
And problems that are rife;
Be careful with a knife,
And how to tackle strife.

A teacher is so wise;
Most teachers do advise,
To keep away from vice,
And never tell white lies!

They teach us speak the truth;
And guide us in our youth;
In life, they help us smile
And run our earthly mile.

Some teach us how to play;
Some tell us how to say
The twin words, ‘aye’ and ‘nay’
And put us in life’s way.

God bless our teachers dear;
And keep them always near;
Their voices to well hear;
May they in life not tear.

What could our school-life be,
Without teachers lovely?
We love our teachers truly
We’ll miss them all surely!

‘Happy Teachers’ Day! ’ (Sept 5th)

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
