Unity Picture                                                     "United we stand; divided we fall”


P A R E N T and T E A C H E R

I dreamed I stood in a studio

And watched two sculptors there

The clay they used was a young child's mind

And they fashioned it with care


One was a teacher and the tools he used

Were books, music, and art

The other a parent who worked

With a gentle and loving heart


Day after day the teacher toiled

With touch that was deft and sure

While the parent labored by his side

And polished and smoothed it over


Until at last their task was done

They were proud of what they had wrought

For the things they had molded into the child

Could never be sold or bought


But each agreed he would have failed

If he had worked alone

But behind the teacher stood the school

And behind the parent the home
