In the third grade, I had a teacher that changed my 8 year old life. The following year he retired. To honor the occassion, I wrote a poem and presented it at the year-end awards ceremony in front of my whole school. For nostalgia, I wanted to post it today!
Remember the paintings, bright yellow and green.
The first place award, the trip to Dairy Queen.
Cricket, Kit-Kat and Piff.
The tiny pink salmon and Tranquille Creek.
Grezelda and sixty-below.
But I still think you’re the best of all.
