Happy World Students' Day 2021: Poems


A Student

What does it mean to be one

Books and exams

Is that all there is to it hun?

No, replied the wise man

For, with a smile, he said

We are all students

Till the time we’re dead

Metaphorical, may this story be

But his words can’t be truer

Nothing can stop you in life

As long as you are a learner
By Unknown


In every school, to every student
there's a special teacher.
To every teacher, to every student
there's a special bond.
To every bond to every moment
There's a special time that we'll think
back and say to ourself's "That teacher
really cared!"
If you know that teacher cares
you're life will brighten up.

Cause now you know that
if you fall, that same special teacher
Will come and help you up.

By Gloria Celiant


A Student's Temptation

Straining up the rise with heavy books
I grumble. But at the top gold sifting
Through the fleeting fog shifts the shadows
On distant hills, and I almost follow the road
That is lost in a green haze on the horizon.
But by the time I reach the turn to school
Those beckoning beyonds are gone from sight,
And I am able to quiet this vagabond heart,
Taking with me the glimpse of morning on the hills.
By Lillian Susan Thomas
