Они, должно быть, прибывали в космических кораблях самых разных систем -- полип из озера, например, в корабле, наполненном водой того моря, которое было естественной средой его обитания.

Была ли догма Мастера принята на Земле с терпимостью, оставалось неясным. Но, по крайней мере, она не встретила бурной оппозиции, и после долгих блужданий эти фанатики нашли себе окончательное пристанище среди лесов и гор Лиза. На закате своей долгой жизни Мастер вновь обратил мысли к дому, из которого он был изгнан, и попросил вынести его из помещения на воздух, чтобы он мог смотреть на звезды.

Теряя последние силы, он подождал появления Семи Солнц и под самый занавес набормотал еще много такого, что должно было в будущем вызвать к существованию новые груды книг с толкованиями. Снова и снова он распространялся о Великих, которые сейчас временно покинули эту Вселенную, но которые в один прекрасный день, несомненно, вернутся, и обязал своих фанатиков приветствовать их по возвращении.

Thank You Poems for Teacher: Say thank you to your teacher with a poem that expresses gratitude and appreciation like no other. Write it as a thank you note or pen it down on a greeting card which you can leave on your teacher’s desk. Teachers work hard to give you a good education. They put up with being insulted and made fun of. They tolerate unacceptable behavior day in and day out, just so that they can shape the world, one student at a time. So stop waiting for Teachers’ Day and tell your teacher how grateful you are with a sweet poem that is more than just words. Whether it is a cute rant or a funny rambling mashed up into a short rhyme – give your teachers yet another reason to pursue their passion for making a contribution to the lives to students like you.


1) Some teachers are sweet

Some teachers are a delight

Some teachers are funny

Some teachers are always right

Some teachers are cute

Some teachers are annoying

Some teachers are boring

Some teachers are irritating

But you, are hard to label

Because in every possible way

You motivate and inspire us

Day after day…

Thank you


2) Dear teacher…

You are a simile

Of living life dutifully

You are an alliteration

Of words that mean devotion

You represent an irony

That explains both joy and glee

You are a real pun

Sometimes grave, sometime fun

You are an allegory

Of how educators should really be

Like many figures of speech

We love to see you teach


3) While teaching, you put in

Your heart and soul, it shows

As students, we appreciate it

Is what we want you to know

Even though we don’t

Express it out aloud

Of your significant contribution

In our lives, we have no doubt

Thank you


4) When you give us surprise tests

We find them really annoying

When you overload us with homework

Everything seems so irritating

When you use complicated jargon

We find studies a bit too boring

When you give us deadlines

We find them a bit too overwhelming

But when everything is said and done

We realize the hard work that goes into teaching

So even though we crib and complain

Respecting you, is something we won’t stop doing

Thank you


5) Dear teacher…

The school’s best hire

Never, should you retire

Your advice never misfires

You, we really admire

You never tire

You never breathe fire

You always inspire

You always push us higher

Thank you


6) When you teach

Your words just flow

At that time nowhere else

I want to stand up and go

When you explain something

It makes me take notice

And when I understand that

It gives me sheer bliss

Learning, with you

Is such a wonderful journey

Dear teacher, today I give

My thanks to you abundantly


7) Out of all the memories

That I have of school

Of having so much fun

And breaking every rule

Of all the good times

That I’ve had with friends

Of doing crazy things

And enjoying to no end

There is one memory

That I cherish from the heart

And that is being your student

From the very start

Thank you


8) You are the teacher

Who opened my mind to new thoughts

You are the teacher

Who I really adore and love lots

You are the teacher

Who taught me to explore

You are the teacher

Who brought my talents to the fore

Thanks for being such a great teacher

And caring for me all along the way

Thanks for being such a great guide

You inspire me even today


9) Without wonderful teachers

Students wouldn’t feel like studying

There would be no desire to learn

Because textbooks are so boring

But because of teachers like you

Students are having fun at school

Realizing that it is not brawns

But brains that makes you cool

Thank you


10) The best teachers

Are not the ones with medals

The most amazing teachers

Don’t always have credentials

Superlative teachers

Don’t always have accolades

Excellent teachers

Don’t always emphasize grades

Teachers who can be called

Perfect in every way

Are tireless and dedicated ones like you

For that, I thank you today

11) I still remember that day

When I failed and I cried

But you reassured me calmly

And congratulated me because I tried

You taught me not to get disappointed

At life’s minor bumps and bounces

I will never forget that because you

Made me believe in second chances

Thank you


12) You didn’t teach from books

You taught from the pages of your life

You didn’t just teach letters and words

You taught me how to deal with strife

You didn’t just give me grades

You assessed me as a person

You didn’t just give me confidence

You pushed me until I won

Thank you


13) Even after I left school

I remember every lesson that you taught

Your role in my life has been priceless

Your wisdom was what, I always sought

Your priceless words

I will remember till my dying day

I pray, that wonderful teachers

Like you, come everyone’s way

Thank you


14) If not for your guidance

I wouldn’t have learnt

If not for all your help

My fingers would have been burnt

If not for your advice

I would have gone wayward

If not for your counsel

Many things I would’ve feared

If not for your presence

I would have been nowhere

Thanks for giving me

Lessons along with care


15) I may not remember the books

That you’ve taught me

I may not remember the details

Of subjects you made me study

But what I will always remember

Is that I had the best opportunity

To study under your tutelage

An experience I’ll cherish dearly

Thank you


16) Teacher teacher, dear teacher

You always led by example, you were never a preacher

Teacher teacher, dear teacher

Even when we failed, you were always a believer

Teacher teacher, dear teacher

You looked after everyone, even the backbenchers

Teacher teacher, dear teacher

Your knowledge and wisdom, has made us richer

Thank you


17) If a nation really wants to evolve and grow

If a nation really wants to see a better tomorrow

It needs to start making changes at the ground level

To educate young minds and remove society’s devils

This can only be possible if there are more teachers like you

Who put their heart and souls to help students get through

Today the whole class just wants to show appreciation

For leading the way with your motivation and inspiration


18) Your way of teaching makes math seem fun

It also makes everything seem just too easy

Algebra and geometry aren’t difficult anymore

Solving all problems has become so breezy

Class would have been totally boring

If we did not have a teacher like you

Numbers would have been so complicated and dull

We would have fallen asleep even while doing two plus two

Thank you


19) Some teachers preach

But good teachers only teach

Some teachers help you to learn

But good teachers help you to discern

Some teachers compliment you to do better

But good teachers ask you to work harder

You were the best of them all, for me

You made me the best I could ever be

Thank you


20) Teachers have a halo around them

They always look so serene

You too have been an angel for me

Without you, I wonder where I would have been

Every word that came out of your mouth

Made me smart and wise

It is because I had a teacher like you

That life turned out to be so nice

Thank you

21) You set me free

When the world bogged me down

You put a smile on my face

When all I wanted to do is frown

It is because I had a teacher like you

I didn’t falter in life’s treacherous path

My future, with your guidance and advice

Was saved from a terrible aftermath

Thank you


22) Please accept my gratitude

For everything that you have given to me

My promising future full of potential

Is right before your eyes to see

You are the one who has contributed

The most in my growing years

Thanks for being a wonderful teacher

To that, I raise a toast and say cheers


23) Teachers like you make classrooms

The best places to be

Which is why students look back at their lives

And miss their schools dearly

Teachers like you make learning

Simple and carefree

That’s why students look at difficult problems in life

And say ‘That is so easy’

The only reason why

I drag myself to school every single day

Is to be in your class

Because it drives my blues away


24) You have been a lot more

To me, than just a teacher

You have been my guide

My supporter and also my mentor

Your words have had a profound effect

Helping this teenager come out of the shell

For that, I want to say thanks

I will always wish you well


25) It’s amazing to see

How you, just one person

Can change the lives

Of hundreds and millions

It’s phenomenal to see

How your teachings

Can change attitudes

And many a leanings

The power you yield

Is really very great

To have you as my teacher

I truly thank my fate


26) Why wait for Teachers’ Day

When you can celebrate

A teacher’s contribution in your life

And show them what you appreciate

That is the reason I decided

To give thanks to you right away

I don’t want to wait a minute more

To say what I want to say

Like clay or wet sand

You molded us into beautiful people

Your support made all the difference

It made us extraordinary and special

Thank you


27) I want to thank you

Not just for being a good teacher

But for being

A caring second mother

I want to thank you

Not just for being my teacher

But for being

A guide and a mentor

I want to thank you

Not just for helping me out

But for motivating me

And melting away my doubts

Thank you


28) Dear teacher…

No matter how much

I keep thanking you all day

It’s not going to match up

To your contribution in any way

No matter how many

Gifts and flowers I give you

It won’t be enough to show

Gratefulness for what’s due

No matter what things

For you I decide to buy

I won’t be able to thank you

Even if I try


29) The reason I don’t feel

Even a bit of worry

To venture into

Unchartered territory

The reason I don’t feel

The lack of confidence

In taking many risks

And making tough decisions

Is because you have

Always taught me

To either do or to die

And persist continuously



30) Our school is appreciated

By one and all

All these years

The institution has stood tall

But that’s not because

Of any other reason

But because of teachers like you

Who make it number one

Thank you

Teacher Appreciation Verses Poems

Jon Bratton

Teacher Appreciation Verses Poems? Give yourself a gold've just found lots.
Because you're sooo special (Miss Giles)
This card was especially sought
You know I wasn't always well behaved
But I know I was always so well taught
I will miss you..
..And thank you

Alternative, for card makers

Because you're special (Mrs White)
This card is handmade, not bought

I will miss you..
..And thank you

These poems are ideal for Teacher Appreciation Day or Week or when the preschooler, pupil or student is leaving the school or the class or when the teacher is leaving for progression or retirement

To Teacher, when pupil is leaving (or use present tense if still there)

I know I wasn't the best behaved 
That you've ever taught.
I know I got distracted 
Much more than I ought

And I didn't pay attention 
Every minute of the day,
And admittedly, my favourite time
Was going out to play 

Yet determinedly you taught me 
Putting me to the test,
Encouraging my efforts
As you made me do my best. 

Some lessons were a challenge 
And you taught me how to cope, 
Each day I grew in confidence, 
Ability and hope.

I really now appreciate
You made me learn thro' fun.
Thank you very very much (Miss Giles)
For all you've said and done.

I will remember you my whole life through;

Thank you so much

Teacher Thank You Poems
© V4C

With a special gift for learning
And with a heart that deeply cares,
You add a lot of love
To everything you share,
And even though you mean a lot,
You'll never know how much,
For you helped to change the world
Through every life you touched.

You sparked the creativity
In the students whom you taught,
And helped them strive for goals
That could not be bought,
You are such a special teacher
That no words can truly tell
However much you're valued
For the work you do so well.

Thank you so much for being
So very nice, kind and good;
I like you so much, (Miss Giles)
I'd stay here if I could
I always loved your class;
Your teaching helped me see,
That to have a full and happy life,
Learning is the key.

Teacher Appreciation Verses Poems

Whose child is this?" I asked one day
Seeing a little one out at play
"Mine", said the parent with a tender smile
"Mine to keep a little while
To bathe his hands and comb his hair
To tell him what he is to wear
To prepare him that he may always be good
And each day do the things he should"

"Whose child is this?" I asked again
As the door opened and someone came in
"Mine", said the teacher with the same tender smile
"Mine, to keep just for a little while
To teach him how to be gentle and kind
To train and direct his dear little mind
To help him live by every rule
And get the best he can from school"

"Whose child is this?" I ask once more
Just as the little one entered the door
"Ours" said the parent and the teacher as they smiled
And each took the hand of the little child
"Ours to love and train together
Ours this blessed task forever."

Thank You (Miss Giles) for your part in our joint venture

Yet more Teacher Thank You Poems

Thank you (Miss Giles) for all you've done
For teaching all I need to know
I'll always remember you most fondly
No matter where I go.

© V4C

Thank you, (Miss Giles)
For teaching me to be
Bigger, stronger, better

"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember
Involve me and I learn"
Benjamen Franklin said that
And I say "The highest praise as a teacher you earn"

Teacher Appreciation Verses Poems

© V4C

You remind me of a land dwelling reptile
Shielded from predators by a shell
Because you tortoise so well
It gets worse
Your career is like its marine cousin
Yes, you can guess
Always willing to stick your neck out
It's been a turtle success
Thank you for everything...
well except for teaching me how to write poetry

Jon Bratton © 2012

You're a truly gifted teacher
Very wise
"You see tomorrow
In every child's eyes"

Thank you very much for everything

Thank You Poems for Teacher

The Thank You, Teachers Project

A heart-filled project to lift up teachers,

one thank you letter at a time.

Every day in classrooms across the country, dedicated teachers put in long hours educating students, preparing lessons, grading homework, engaging with families, collaborating with colleagues, and overcoming obstacles. Their work is vital to children, parents, communities, and our future, yet rarely do teachers receive the thanks they deserve. We wanted to change that – so we created the Thank You, Teachers Project.

Through this project, you can thank your child’s teacher or that special educator in your life. (Parents are encouraged to help their children participate.)  Thank a teacher from the classroom, on the field, in the art studio, on stage, in the library, or in the principal’s office. Thank a fellow teacher you admire, your yoga teacher, your child’s coach, your favorite librarian… it’s up to you!

#1 Post a Thank You Letter

Use this easy form to write a short (200 word) thank you letter.

Once we receive your letter, we will post it on the Thank You, TeachersGallery and on Pinterest.  We will then email the link to you and your teacher.

If you want the letter posted by a particular date (Staff Appreciation Day, the last day of school, your teacher’s birthday, etc.), please be sure to notify us at least a week before the date.

There is no charge for posting these letters. We donate our time to this effort as a part of our commitment to support and honor teachers.


#2 Post a Letter &Send a Gift Book

To post a letter and send an autographed copy of Teaching with Heart, please fill out the Thank You Letter and Gift Book Package form. With this package, we will:

  • Post your letter on the Thank You, TeachersGallery and on Pinterest.

  • Mail a copy of your letter and an autographed copy of Teaching with Heart (a book written by teachers, for teachers).

  • Send a copy of your letter to your teacher’s principal or supervisor to ensure that your teacher receives “extra credit” for being such a great teacher.

  • The cost for this gift package is $30.00 (including shipping and handling).

We will post your letter as soon as possible. If you want the letter posted by a particular date (Staff Appreciation Day, the last day of school, your teacher’s birthday etc.), please be sure to notify us at least a week before the date.

#3 Post a Shout Out to all the teachers at your school! 

PTAs, Principals and Parents: You can post a “Shout Out” to all the teachers at your school.  Let your teachers – and the world – know how special they are. You can also arrange for gift books for all of the teachers. It’s a great way to say thank you for all that they do for your students and school.

If you have questions,please check out ourFAQ or email us We look forward to hearing from you.

Please help add to this wave of gratitude by sharing this project via Facebook and twitter @poetry4teachers. Like, follow, tweet and share this project with your friends, colleagues, schools, PTAs, and other networks.

Contributionsare welcome to help support and expand this effort so that it reaches teachers across the country.

Thank you for creating a wave of gratitude for teachers!
