TO THE TEACHERS OF THE YOUNG

How large thy task, O teacher of the young,
To take the ravelled threads by parents flung
With careless hands, and through consummate care
To weave a fabric, fine and firm and fair.
God's uncompleted work is thine to do--
Be brave and true!

Poems of Optimism. By Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
London: Gay & Hancock, 1915.
