Letter to a Teacher

By Ethel Abraham


I love you dearly teacher

Who daily sets me right.

With calm resolve to love me

But never judge or fight.


You’re not afraid of asking

The questions that I dread

Because you know the answers

Are sleeping in my head.


You listen and inspire

And sometimes read aloud

Some words I’ve never heard of

Unless my head is bowed.


Like old friends sent to greet me

With lessons from afar

You aim a light into my heart

Just like a shooting star.


You part the clouds and wipe a tear

And loan me courage to turn from fear

I love you teacher, dear.
