Day Three

The Grace to Teach

You have given me the grace
to teach
how to love the test
and the test takers
each question sitting
patiently on the tip
of tongues, waiting
to be answered
every swift extension
of arms, a symbol
of surrender

thank you for giving me the grace
to teach
I understand now
the love of the Teacher
to push his students beyond
what they think they can do
so as to rely fully
on the One
who’s in control
