To a Teacher
By Alta J. Vance
She lived above the world
And caught up many to her higher plane.
Between her and those who walk in clay
There was a bond
If they but wished to grow.
She placed high value on the human soul
And recognized its limitless possibilities.
For a dozen years she taught me;
For a life time I shall recall her teachings;
And I shall hope my heaven
Will give me further learning
At her feet –
To hear her voice and know again
Her majesty of soul.
