The teacher and the taught


The little devil walks up
-head bowed,
a picture of repentance

-he seeks forgivance
eager to apologise
a reformed person.

The teacher looks on
her eyes filled with affection
ready to embrace the culprit.

The teacher and taught
share an experience
unique and vibrant.

Each time a student walks up to ask
each time the teacher feels honoured to answer
each time a student turns to her for guidance
the teacher obliges with no resistance.

Here in the classroom
many life portraits are made
the present, past and future
are intermittently linked.

The teacher and the taught
share a relation
unique and vibrant.
