She works alone upon her screen
With Leyla on her lap
Both teaching kids and counselling
Her cat content to nap.
The teacher works for hours on end
For students one and all
She sets them work and talks to them
When on a conference call.
With Leyla purring on her knee
She works upon her screen
And counsels kids who need her help
When life at home is mean.
Her students do their best for her
They know their teacher’s worth,
Her diligence and loving care
The best teacher on earth.
So soon when they are back at school
And once again a team
The days when they all worked on line
Will just seem like a dream.
