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'.
