I wish Irving many, many more happy and healthy birthdays.

I dedicate this poem to Irving Feldman, my Masters’ Project advisor

who guided me in my poetry and encouraged me to submit my

work for publication.

Thank you.

Teacher's Art

I have been schooled

To teach school students

So that somehow they

Be born to selves.

And I again, in their learning

Grow smarter, so to

sew and paint wiser

Thought as a master

Stroking back-washed board.

Applying film layers

Barely discernable. 

Attempting to produce a

Finished masterpiece.

“Teacher’s Art” is published in:
