You Made Me

My dear teacher
Your strictness
Never bothered me
It set me straight.

All my feelings
I had to express to you
Before they boiled in me
And blew me out.

Your unlimited knowledge
Provided me with
The guidance I needed
When I was with you.

Your extraordinary patience
And thoughtful transfer of wisdom
Always helped me acquire
All that I had to.

You made me what I am
I just added a little here
And a little there to deliver
To others what I learned.

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
