I Carry You in my Heart

Ah, bittersweet, my last day of teaching
(at least until next spring!)
at the Hungerford School.
Oh, how I'll miss it.

This might be how each day began...
...but this is how most days ended!!!

(Pictured: Rachel having her usual existential crisis.)

Sweet, soulful Christerpher.

Hilarious Matthew who informed me that the mysterious
"man in the red suit"
who often shows up in his poems
is, in fact, Santa Claus.

The ever-inspiring Courtney who described her teacher as
"cuddly as a tiger lily."

Da Boyz of Mr. Anthony's class
who took the last day to write deeply passionate love poems
to their sub.

Adam & Manny--
big-hearted, fairy-loving fun--
half the time I forgot we were supposed to be learning.

Goodbye, sweet poets!!!

I carry you in my heart
along the city streets,
and, oh your love, it makes me smile
at everyone I meet.
