Two Sculptors in Life’s Studio

I dreamt I stood in a studio
And watched two sculptors there.
The clay they used was a young child’s mind
And they fashioned it with care.

One was the teacher–the tools she used
Were books and music and art.
One was a parent with a guiding hand
And a gentle loving heart.

Day after day, the teacher toiled with touch
That was careful, deft, and sure.
While the parent labored by his side
and polished and smoothed it o’er.

And when at last their work was done
They were proud of what they had wrought.
For the thing they moulded into a child
Could neither be sold or bought.

And each agreed they would have failed
If they had worked alone.
For behind the parent stood the school
And behind the teacher, the home.
