TThank You, Teacher

Thank You, Teacher
Julia Shaw

We teachers all on knowledge dine
And we unlock our students' minds.
So they can reach the path divine
We really are of 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.
