Poems

Farewell, Ms. Wadia

I met her long ago,

About six years or so.

I found her very inspiring,

And also highly motivating,

She touched my heart.

The teacher above the crowd,

Of her the whole school is proud.

The strict disciplinarian,

And the best Grammarian.

She knows English better than

The very Queen of England.

In the eighth standard, at last,

She came to teach our class.

She was strict and a perfectionist

More than we had ever wished.

Her taste in clothing was interesting

And often very surprising.

While we enjoyed her company,

She aimed for our victory,

Alas, she taught us for only one year,

Now, she won’t be that near.

Physically, of course, she will be far,

But will always be in our hearts.

Thanks for making a caterpillar a larva,

We will all miss you, Miss Wadia.
