Unity I dreamed I stood in a studioAnd
watched two sculptors there,The clay they used
was a young child's mindAnd they fashioned it
with care. One was a teacherthe tools she used
were books and music and artOne was a parent
with a guiding hand and a gentle loving
heart. And when at last their work was doneThey
were proud of what they had wroughtFor the
things they had worked into the childCould never
be sold or bought. And each agreed she would have
failedIf she had worked aloneFor behind the
parent stood the school,and behind the teacher
stood the home. by Ray A. Lingenfelter,
