Our Mentor (Acrostic Poem)


(A tribute to Dr. Asuncion Paraan,89)

A grand master you had been
Stern character but with a heart
Unbroken principle you portrayed
Never yielding to all the challenges
Command responsibility you fostered
In every task or goal that you accomplished
Over the years you had exemplified excellence
Now it marked as your legacy for us to lead on.

Peculiar attributes you possessed
Always acted with best leadership
Real disposition of self- confidence
A foundation to triumph over others
Attuned with wisdom was your secret
Now you are immortal in our memories.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
