TO THE PUPIL WHO IS IN DILEMMA


You have to be my beloved lad:

'A fearless dreamer,
A petitioner of your unspoken love,
A wild catcher of time and
A passionate friend'.

You must not be my dear lass:

'Moody and foolish,
Illusive or day dreaming,
Ill tempered or vain some and
Emotional or sensitive'.

And both of you listen:

'Let the mind flutter like a kite
And let it not hide like a mouse.
Let your head be held high in esteem
And never bend your knee before the worthless lot'.

    And never bend your knee before the worthless lot'.

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
