A Teacher - Poem by Jordan Legaspi

The men and women of noble valor
Thus, bearing different titles of honor
Education with its philosophy and discipline
It is their vow –their gift from heaven
And no matter what, they have and should carry
The legacy of what is good and healthy;
Child they are once, therefore,
Their natural wit and creative nature
Has have had molded the he and the she –
In details of holistic character of you and me
Err though, a teacher is nay free
But above all else knowledgeable of many;
Reason must be their crowning glory,
While their emotion is their halo of maturity
