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

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
