Day 17 – English

English

I smile.

All it takes is a quote,
and I am back in your classroom,
learning to love.

We looked into the heart of an immense darkness,
Let no nets ensnare us,
Venturing into brave new worlds.

It was a different world,
comforting.

You gave me a pencil and a piece of paper,
And taught me how to weave my thoughts
Between the margins.

I think of you,
and I think of daffodils and English tea and hats.

Thank you,
for starting the adventure,
letting me tumble down the rabbit hole into life.
