Mrs. Peoples

second grade seems so long ago
there were so many things i didn't know
but you took the time to teach to me
gifts of life and creativity.

i remember crosswords for halloween
tissue creations with glue and beans
handwriting lessons learning to print
math lessons without giving a hint.

but remembered more than anything
is the beautiful smile that you would bring
teaching your students to read and write
you enhanced our gifts with your light.
