Lesson Plan For Today

Posted on

Use every day to
teach yourself or
better, Wake Up
Ready to let
the day teach you.
Oh its lesson plans
are tattered from use
and look haphazard
held together as they are
with bits of twine and yellowed
cellophane tape
pages softened by repetition
This is an old,old lesson from a
teacher who remembers your
grandparents and their grandparents
but as a unit of instruction
a day is the perfect length
And if it is a day when the student
is sick or lazy or distracted
No matter. There is a new lesson
just over the horizon, almost here
Wake up ready to let this day be
The One to Teach you something
