Thank You for Your Good and Gentle Care

Music: The Greenwood Tree.
Sequenced by Barry Taylor.

Thank you for your good and gentle care,
Having made your classroom bright with song,
Apparent in my child's frequent smiles,
Nestled in his thoughts of right and wrong.
Kids, like teachers, know when love is there.

You are the connoisseur of many styles,
Opening through days difficult and long
Understandings supple, sweet, and fair.
