10/13 - Trees and Mrs. Porter
We all have teachers that were important in our life. Mrs. Margaret Porter was my 7th and 8th grade English teacher. I also worked for her in high school when she became the librarian for Brookville High School.
Mrs. Porter loved poetry and we had to memorize a lot of poems. This is a poem I remember from 7th grade. And yesterday when I was at Woodland Cemetery, marveling at the size of the trees, and how the sunlight was shining through the leaves, I thought of Mrs. Porter and one of the poems she shared with us. Now I share it with you.
