My Teacher, drawing by Angela Higwit*, 6
I did not know I needed a haircut and thorough shave;
I did not know I have a receding chin and forehead,
A little hunchback and calloused elbow I really have;
Large ears and an unsuspecting eye on top of my head.
Such is my image as teacher to the mind of a child;
Imagination is something a mentor cannot provide.
Angela Higwit was only six when she took up art lessons from the author in 2000. I posed for a sketch and this is Angela's interpretation.
