"Faces of hope! I see you shining now / Rising in the east but never setting"

Transcendental Sonnet #1362:

The Teacher


Faces of hope!  I see you shining now

Rising in the east but never setting

The days of this my mortal span allow

Remembering but never forgetting


We are never parting only greeting

Across the arc of time expectantly

At the crossroads of two ages meeting

As I with you find out what we can do

Together in this mutuality

Which finds two minds becoming one somehow


Far in the future please remember me

That I was here and that I cared for you

And I will show you everything I know

To bring your bud to bloom before I go

A different kind of love song here, and one I think more important than most: singing lights of dedication to noble principle and human potential, illuminating beautifully what perhaps should be our primary activity in this world--one soul's humane and loving empowerment of another in order that the best of what we give to this world may live on and become even better.
Reviewed by Alexandre Arnau 4/29/2005
this was an excellent write, which hits home for me: both my parents are retired teachers, who can't get it out of their system, no matter what they say. a beautiful dedication to beautiful people. thank you, deeply...

respect and admiration, -A.
