Thank You,Teacher

We teachers all on knowledge dine

And we unlock our students' minds.

So they can reach the path  divine

We really are a special kind.


We are mentors that prompt their yearning

Reading is a skill that we must impart.

So they can always read for learning.

A thirst for knowledge we should jumpstart.


We are like shepherds guiding sheep

Showing them how to take the right path.

Without our nurture, they would sadly creep

Through all the world unending wrath.


Yes, we teachers, turn the pages

Of a great many wonderful books.

Our training reaches down through the ages

We teach our pupils for wisdom to look.


Thank you, dear teacher, 

For all, you have done.

In a  world of so many

You are a special one.
