For teachers

“In a drop thou beholdest the secrets of the sea” | so with all the perfections potential in thee. | | As a teacher draws forth from the days of youth | our thoughts and ideas on the subject of truth, | | the mind develops, and the hearts unfold – | bearing diamonds and rubies, emeralds and gold – | | from that inner land, hidden in the eyes of a babe, | every great man and woman is made.
