Autographs

Now that I have retired, I was going through the accumulation of odds and ends over the years and came across my old autograph which I had maintained till the end of my school days. In it I came across the following poem written by my maths teacher, Mrs. Tha Sein of the Seventh Day Adventist School in Rangoon (Yangon), Burma (Myanmar).

Is there aught so dear to me
That I cannot share with thee.
In the casket of my heart
Do I hide from thee a part.

All my treasures now I pour
At thy feet for evermore.
Love and life and will are thine,
I a rich if thou art mine.

Beautiful isn't it?

This, naturally, brought me memories of these school days when my Headmistress was a Miss Lockie Gifford and my old friends. like Jennifer Rees. Like in the song "Those were the days"; we had a lot of dreams and after all these years, we are still the same, still having those dreams in our hearts.
