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/She never knows where his/her influence stops'

 

Michael Ashby

Charles William Eliot (1834 - 1926)
