Poetry Friday -- To My Students
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.

I've had fun with this form, introduced to us by Tabatha a couple of weeks ago.
This week, Michelle has the Poetry Friday roundup at Today's Little Ditty, and next week, Janet Wong will be the guest hostess at Sylvia Vardell's blog, Poetry For Children.
