Teacher


Would you like to be a teacher?
Feel the difference between you and the preacher?
Who meets people once in a while
Informs them how to live life with form and style

While the teacher meets face and nerve
Whose students ask him more than he can serve
And ask him for more than he is able to deliver
The preacher preaches to give while the teacher is a gateway giver

Would you like to be the teacher?
Be the doctor and the council unlike the preacher
Do more than one thing at one time for the sake of many
And wish for so many favours in return but shy to ask any

Then become the judge and jury
You feel like multiple people with fumes of fine and fury
Then feel human like all and remember places replaceable
You were once the student and wanted a teacher to be capable

Teachers and preachers are both truly heard
The preachers has the Almighty, the Book, the robe and the Word
The teacher has some but not all and must create along
And make words out of words and shorten that which is long

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:
