Canopy of Trees

Beneath thy arches
A walk with patterned hatches
The student watches.

Shady is the lawn,
Thy beauty is fresh at dawn,
Even if not mown.

Fields where bright minds meet
There are challenges to beat
A privileged feat.

Teachers so gentle
Unfettered and strong mettle
Loftily subtle.

Harnessing one’s thought
Learning can never be bought
Every student sought.
