Grateful for What We Have Learned

Grateful for what we have learned,
Ready now to start
A life in which what we will earn
Depends upon the heart.
Underneath our new degrees
Are habits, knowledge, skill,
That are essential qualities
In anyone who will
One day look back upon this day
Needing learning still.
