An Acrostic Song To Mrs.Padmini Richard - Poem by chandra thiagarajan

M rs. Padmini Richard, our teacher, darling,
R adiant, Cheerful and ever Smiling,
S plendid teaching, with laughter sprinkling-

P romoted us to rungs higher,
A dding knowledge year after year—
D uring the period 1978 and 1981:
M agnificent a joy did envelop us,
I mbibing the lovable virtues and goodness
N ourished by you, our dear teacher;
I ndebted to you, so, we are for ever!

R ecounting the golden days with you,
I mmense grief grips us too—
C omforting hours are slipping on fast;
H earts pining we know not how to part.
A ngelic teacher, with loving respects we depart,
R equesting the Lord, His blessings to shower,
D rawing you, your kith and kin, under His cover.
