I have learned so much more
Than I thought I ever knew,
When I came to spend my time
With young students, such as you.

You showed me tender feelings
Held inside your minds and hearts;
You put your thoughts to paper
Then shared your wonderful art.

I see and feel the wisdom
In each verse you’ve written down.
That special place you go to,
A place that you all have found.

I most sincerely thank you
For the time that you gave me;
With sharp pencils and notebooks,
Be all that you can be.
