To Neth


Nethra* or eyes as it is interpreted
A very good teacher and friend
Nice conversation to be enjoyed
What a coincidence to be overjoyed

What a pleasant surprise in early hours?
As if cuckoo was near to my ears
Her words rang noble tone
My work was certainly done

I loved teachers from childhood
They were respected and understood
Very much impressive and solid memory
I was always made happy not to feel sorry

Here was personality from distant land
Just making call to be included as friend
I wish many more are coming in natural way
I find it glorious and memorable day

“Teachers must have lots of passion”
She added feather in sweet relation
Is the real teacher narrating sole purpose?
I thought for while and certainly reposed

“You must love the work” she went on adding
“You need better collection of words” I was riding
“Knowledge must be searched non stop” she asserted
“Teaching is profession to be on top” I was gladly interested

I have bowed to teachers’ number of times
Even as on date we go and visit them so many times
They have left ever lasting impression
I feel it was strong laying of the foundation

*Neth… Name

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
