TO MY STUDENTS
You be the leader, and I’ll be the cheer,
You be the pilot; I’ll let you steer.
You be the talent, and I’ll be the scout,
You be applause; I’ll be a shout.
I’ll be the sleep, and you be the dream,
I’ll be the banks; you be the stream.
I’ll be the roots, and you be the pine,
I’ll be the fence; you be the vine.
