You are here

Poetic stance

Dear editor:

In the spirit of the season I have composed a little ditty. I'd be obliged if you all would print it. It goes kinda like this . . .

Dear Teacher

You are

Knowledge like a flowing well

Toughness like a turtle's shell

More courage than Hercules

Your kindness always come with ease

Patient as the feline stalking

Companionship as two are walking.

The problem that I have today

Is that the strike has not gone away

Somehow deep down in my side

Easy answers will not abide.

Show me that when I'm sixty and three

I can still live comfortably.

Show me how is the challenge then

Show me, show me if you can.

Respectfully yours,

Rolf Geissler
