Oh, the teacher said, "A poem
Would be a lovely thing. r
Just air your inspirations,
For you know that it is spring."
But little knew the teacher
The brainstorms these words caused,
For many were the pencils
That on the paper paused.
The pupils wrote of blackbirds,
And diamonds in the dew:
Ol' golden, shining sunbeams,
And flowers of every hue.
Oh, words came never harder--
The blackbirds would not sing,
The diamonds would not sparkle,
Nor the brook with ripples ring.
Now just to show the labor
That's spent on students' rhymes,
I'll tell you of one student
Who tried it many times. '
"The lark's song so exultant
Rang on the the morning air."
But rhymes are so elusive
He gave up in despair.
Then he tried another
And this is how it went:
"The stag flees to the summit,
Alas! his breath is spent!"
And long thus did he labor,
And b'1rn the mid-night oil,
With this rhyme for the teacher
After all his weary toil:
"Although I know it's springtime,
To poets I leave the task
Of writing all the poems
For which the teachers ask."
