A Visit to a Waterfall on a Wall

"The academe would be dry and silent,
     if the water doesn’t meet the sea." - AVR

Teachers of San Vicente Integrated School on a visit
at the author’s residence, San Vicente, Ilocos Sur

A teacher is likened to a waterfall,
     it links the sky, land and sea;
catches rain, feeds rivers and lakes,
     keeps Nature’s bounty and beauty.

So does a teacher nourish the young,
     his mind, heart, body and soul,
With lessons in school and of life itself
     that he grows wise and whole.

It talks and sings, in full or in ebb,
     whispers, humbles the bold,
Victoria, Pagsanjan and their kind 
     awe both the young and old.

Wonder if waterfalls don’t exist,
     so with their awesome scenery;
the academe would be dry and silent,
     if the water doesn’t meet the sea. ~
