First Day

I met them today.
Not all of them, of course
Mostly their parents, as they stood back shyly
Talked more with their siblings, young and chatty
I met them.

My students arrived.
I will guide them in learning,
help them find answers to their questions,
and be one of the most important adults in their lives,
as I was reminded today.

Their faces, I remember.
Names, only sometimes
After studying their class photos
They look much older now, a year gone by
How will these faces change?
