The Universal Child - Poem by Nathaleen Cobb

May I respect every child
so they may learn to respect others.
And value each one
As a price beyond compare.
May I share my faith in mutual trust
And enhance theirs as a beacon of hope.
showing freely my profound caring
Through straight answers and a passion for truth.
May I leave this place better by far
From loving them selflessly and without bargain.
