Jewels

By Pel Doski, a first-year ETA in Docheon, Changnyeong

Zoya Hsiao, “Chaos Central,” Gimhae
I’ve got gems
Sparkling in pairs before me,
With bright brilliancy.

They follow me in groups,
Always calling out my name,
Shimmering even in rain.

They twinkle like stars,
Reflect the brightest of rainbows,
Even when it snows.

They shine like the sun,
And illuminate shadows far away,
Especially whenever they say,

Good morning Teacher
