Ode To A TeacherOde To A Teacher10 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
What makes a great teacher?
Well the answer to that is clear.
Look in the mirror and you will see,
Speak and you will hear.
A great teacher is the one,
Who has all the qualities of a friend,
One who will always support you,
And your character always defend.
A hand to help when you stumble,
A few kind words to comfort any heart,
We sensed that you would be this
We knew it from the start.
Such a lucky group of teens
You never will see again
We had this special type of teacher:
The teacher who's a friend.
I finish this poem with a tear,
Sad that you have to leave,
A better teacher I will not find:
This I truly believe.
