Forty two years of kind compassion
Every day you watered a seed
Your gusto nurtured motivation
Many young minds took heed

We rejoice those famed locks of hair
Blazing blonde and belting brown
Teacher's race and broken arm despair
Couldn’t stop a night out on the town

Tottering heels in that convertible motor
Off to Hanoi, Dhaka or Algiers
But the best thing about our Glenda
She gets children, her little dears

Now you've reached golden time
Let’s all rejoice and reminisce
It's now for you to enjoy your prime
And relish that hard earned bliss

Congratulations on your retirement Glenda. Wishing you the best for your new adventure, because retirement is not the end of one’s life, it is a time to fling off the chains and fly.
