Thank Teachers - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

To thank a teacher,
For advising you! !
To overcome.
We all need teachers;
So, do thank your teachers and,
Live in peace with others from what you've learnt.
The muse of life,
To communicate;
The muse of nature,
To write information;
The muse of love,
To search for the truth;
So, do thank teachers who show you the way.
To decode;
Of a possible way,
With the ambuguity of the mind! !
between the right and the wrong.
Clarity is the key;
With the truth,
From the teacher of righteousness.
The law od priority!
To facilitate;
But, listen to the truth! !
Alaways from the teachers of righteousness and,
Be safe in life.

    Fantastic tribute to a very respected yet unrepresentative profession, the best teachers are inspirations for students to believe in themselves and aspire to do things. Wonderful work! (Report) Reply

    Truly, a good teacher advises and encourages not just by telling but with his practical implementation of what he advises.I am too a teacher and I will strive to do everything that I have advocated. I am greatly inspired by the poem. (Report) Reply

    This poem itself is a splendid way to thank you teachers. I once wrote an editorial about a teacher who had had a profound influence on me. I sent her a copy. She was almost overwhelmed with gratitude. She said it was the only such expression of gratitude that she had ever received. That taught me a lesson. Henceforth, I've tried to write letters (or poems) expressing thanks to those who have been my guides and mentors - teachers and others. (Report) Reply
