Funeral Poems For Teachers: "My Last Assembly"
MY LAST ASSEMBLY
If this life has taught me anything
It's that I've been a student all my days
Learning from each interaction
Along the scholastic way
Now a place in the open universe awaits, and
The answer to the last question of the exam hall
Are my views on Religious Education
Still worth anything at all
So farewell to you and my verbosity
I now end with one of Charles Eliot's jots
'A good teacher is like eternity
He never knows where his influence stops'
Charles William Eliot (1834 - 1926)
