Magic Moments

By Lisa Margo Faerman Herman '76


Teaching.

Holding 25 minds in the palm of my handó

Bright, eager facesólike sunflowers,

Following my every movement.

Hostile, angry eyes challenging me to

Disappoint them,

Yet again.

Open, curious minds, hoping to tread

On new territory.

Trusting, yet, nervous, soulsó

Awaiting the unknown,

Wondering if they will succeed.

Yes, let me help you.

Yes, let me guide you through a year

To find yourself at the end of a

Rainbow.
