"Easter Ode to a Cupola"

"In my walking I have seen you, standing steady, proudly ringing. Gather all your children, Steeple! Far and widely scattered are they: busy working, tired of learning, tired of being classroom-seated, tired of writing poems on paper, tired of doing sums and reading, tired of what you have to offer. Bring them back with hearty pealing! Make them eager for your learning. Make them into men and women. Make them wise and make them loving.

"All of us depend on YOU!"

This beautiful photograph was taken by Andree in Vermont. It is of the historic Fiske School, and was done to satisfy a class requirement. (very appropriate!)

This poem (I shall call it a poem) motivates and energizes me. That's good towards the end of a very long winter break. I've been feeling the urge to get back. This intensifies it. You write beautifully, Michael.
