A poem as written by A...N....., unedited.
Dear Ms. S......,
Butterflies are beautiful, but you are more beautiful.
Butterflies are flying in the sky, but you are teaching us on land.
Butterflies bring us nectar, but you give us love and knowledge.
Butterflies are colourful, but you make us get more knowledge.
Butterflies are pretty, but you are more pretty.
Butterflies are very nice, but you are more kinder.
Butterflies are camouflaged with joy, but you are teaching us with joy.
I was taken aback by the camouflaged word since, he identified that word with the butterflies, saying " they change colour to protect themselves from enemies". Well, they take you by surprises. As the poet in him started unfolding, i was amazed to see how a child was able to construct sentences out of his own trying to connect words related to butterflies. (i had made a card with butterfly and wanted him to write something for his teacher using butterflies) And the result was this.
This is a card made for his teacher, to thank her for everything. He moves on to the next grade from 16th April.
