I went to school sometime ago and this is what I learnt–
The immediacy and importance of “Now”
About Nature’s wonders that made me go “Wow!”
I learnt that prejudices can be broken down,
I learnt to sing, dance and clown around.
Fresh perspectives, new expressions,
Childish curiosity and amaze–
That stripped the cataracts from my world-weary gaze;
They taught me so much- every one and each
Of the five-year olds that I’d gone to teach!
