"Fountain and a Sponge"
The fountain always flows
As my knowledge always grows
A sponge sucks up water
Like my students suck up knowledge
" The Sea of Dreams"
At fourteen years I looked outside
I saw a sea a sea of dreams
I snatched one up and held on tight
And four years hence I paid my penance
On that horrible, awful dream
But low and behold not a year unfolds
And I see that sea of dreams once more
I hesitate as I reach out, but grab one just the same
Seven years of honey do this before the nightmare ends
I sat aside for four or five to get myself together
Then one night as I walked outside
I see that sea once more
I looked and looked but never took until I was decided
Ten years had passed till I lost at last
The one dream I thought I cherished
Now at fifty years I shed no tears as I watch that sea go by
Then there she was, my summers dove the only dream I thought I needed
“You’re a fool old man if you think you can.” She said
And she turned and walked away
Now when I look outside and see that sea
I shake my head, and I turn, and walk away.
