Eleanor Cunningham, Teacher Extraordinaire
Eleanor, you are unique
A teacher extraordinaire
Though practical and unsentimental
You teach from the heart as well as the mind
Reaching out to all but especially the needy
You teach with authority and clarity
The Word of God and doctrine
While talking the talk you walk the walk
You live and witness, an example to follow
Though not faultless, you are blameless
Before the Lord and many earthly witnesses
For your faithfulness and firm softspoken conviction
I salute you, Elanor
Teacher extraordinarire
Eleanor Cunningham, Teacher Extraordinaire (c)2012  Quentin Clingerman
