Back to School

Parents: You are the bow in the Archer’s hands.

Mitch Teemley

For they have their own thoughts.

You may house their bodies but not their souls,

For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,

which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

The Archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,

firstdayofpreschooland He bends you with His might

that His arrow may go swift and far.

Let your bending in the Archer’s hand be for gladness;

For even as He loves the arrow that flies,

so He loves also the bow that is stable.”       

~Khalil Gibran
