  1. Through Books And Lessons
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    When it comes to learning, a book has no bounds,
    Learning helps us stand our ground.

  2. One Lesson
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, © 2020

    One lesson in life I learned at an early age
    That there is learning at every stage.
    What I thought I knew all about
    Was only wrong and I saw fallout.

    The best thing that I heard from the preacher
    Is that failure is truly a teacher
    Stand back and learn from it
    It can teach you quite a bit.

    Don't hold grudges, do forgive
    Live your life finding the positive
    Find the good, forget the bad
    Then you find happiness, not the sad.

    Learn one thing each day
    And you will find others will say,
    "He knows so much, when did he get smart?"
    And with that, I will impart -

    Just keep learning through your mistakes
    Don't give up, you have what it takes!

  4. Where Knowledge Is Found
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    In the realm of learning, where knowledge is found,
    We explore the wonders that literacy does abound.
    Through words on a page, understanding takes flight,
    Empowering minds, shining a brilliant light.

    With books as our guide, we unlock new doors,
    Spelling, grammar, and vocabulary in rich galore.
    The power of words, they enchant and enthrall,
    Opening up a world where dreams stand tall.

    Oral expression, a skill so profound,
    Through spoken words, stories spread around.
    In eloquent speech, confidence takes hold,
    Empowering voices that were once untold.

    Learning is not merely facts and figures,
    It's about values and attitudes that trigger,
    Compassion, kindness, and empathy's call,
    Building a world that uplifts one and all.

  13. Knowledge, Skills, and Attitudes
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Through stories shared and voices heard,
    Our words weave magic, like a bird,
    Learning to speak, to convey and share,
    Oral expression, a skill beyond compare.

    Amidst challenges, we learn to navigate,
    Problem-solving skills, our compass, innate,
    Learning to analyze and strategize,
    Solving life's puzzles, we energize.

    Learning's tapestry, woven with care,
    Knowledge, skills, values, attitudes we bear,
    Infinite pathways, wisdom to gain,
    Learning through life, our eternal terrain.

    A journey of curiosity and desire,
    Learning ignites our passion, sets us afire,
    With minds open and hearts intent,
    We seek to learn, wherever we're sent.

  14. A Nobler Way
    Poet: Rev James Allison Barnes

    To live and learn, to ever think the thought
    That gives a richness to the soul's ideals.
    Is better far than letting self, when sought,
    Become supreme in all one thinks and feels.
    To rise above the sordid quest for gain,
    And strive to use in nobler ways the soul,
    Which finds its bent, its true, divinest aim
    In pressing upward, never downward, towards its goal.

  16. Lessons Learn
    Poet: Unknown

    Learn to laugh.
    A good laugh is better than medicine.
    Learn how to tell a story.
    A good story is as welcome as a sunbeam in a sickroom.

    Learn to keep your own troubles to yourself.
    The world is too busy to care for your ills and sorrows.
    Learn not to croak. If you cannot see any good in the world,
    Keep the bad to yourself.

    Learn to hide your aches and pains
    under a pleasant smile.
    Learn to meet your friends with a smile.

  17. Learning More Precious Than Gold
    Poet: Unknown

    For learning, we know, is more precious than gold;
    But the worth of the heart's jewel ne'er can be told.
    We'll strive, then, for virtue, truth, honor, and love.
    And thus lay up treasures in mansions above.

    Our life is a school-time; and till that shall end,
    With our Father in heaven for teacher and friend,
    O, let us perform well each task that is given.
    Till our time of probation is ended in heaven.
