Long Poems

The End of an Era: A Retirement Ode to Teachers

Oh, how the years have flown by,
As we watch our teachers retire and say goodbye.
They’ve filled our minds with knowledge and light,
Guiding us through tough times and making things right.

With lessons taught and wisdom shared,
We’ve gained the tools that’ll take us anywhere.
They’ve shaped our futures with skill and care,
And now it’s time to celebrate and share.

As these educators bid us farewell,
We send them off with a grateful swell.
They’ll carry on, leaving memories in place,
Till the next generation takes its space.

Through laughter and smiles, tears and pain,
Our teachers have been there, time and time again.
They’ve shared our goals, helped to reach our aim,
A true champion, they’ve won the game.

Their warmth and kindness will always stay,
When memories of school come our way.
Their legacy, a treasure that won’t fade,
May they know their contributions won’t be misplaced.

So to all retiring teachers, we salute you,
Let’s take a moment to show our gratitude.
Committed mentors, loving and dear,
May your retirement be your best-loved year.
