To Those Who Teach

Words on the printed page lie

Dormant. Muted. Still.

When, for a purpose wisely applied,

They rise up,

Vibrate! Live! Fulfill!

Blessed be they who expound,

Who guide explorations

Over the tortuous trails of the mind,

Who lead to the fountains

Of freedom and inspiration

Those with an unquenchable thirst

For life-purpose, for wisdom, for peace:

For a star to reach.

O! faithful disciple,

Humble, unknown,

Constant dispenser of truth,

Rise up, magnified.

Mount thy glorious throne.
