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.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
