Riches Within Our Souls

A rose for our teachers
A rose for our teachers

Riches

There are riches within every soul, roughened gems all held,

hidden there, and each one, so very keen,

revealing the depth and breadth, and a beauty in each,

ours to find, and that may well be seen,


Just who may bring this brilliance out, to polish and cut just right,

revealing the wonders of any common man,

a teacher, with a gift of caring, to approach each child,

scaling the heights, and to show that they can!


Reaching deep inside, to find the gifts that are waiting there,

going beyond the greatest of any dream,

polishing and shining the richest of all hopes,

accomplishing the goals, made easier, than they seem.


The teacher, as a devoted miner, traverses the mountainside,

urging the children there to search within,

then a treasure, greater than all gold, gleams for all to see,

eager for the morning sun to compare, a new journey to begin.
