To Teachers On Their Returning To Classes

TO TEACHERS ON THEIR RETURNING TO CLASSES

by Eric Chaet

Hope this finds you happy tho your foes presume you beat.
Hope you have good clothes for cold, & your children lots to eat.

Hope that you’ve been studying what others think passé,
that you’ve uncovered secrets on your solitary way.

Hope that you’re dissatisfied, hope that you’re intense,
hope that you get better paid, & not one student’s dense.

DE LOS PROFESORES AL VOLVER A CLASES
Traduccion espanol – Rafael Antonio Acosta y Eric Chaet

Espero que se encuentren alegres
aunque sus enemigos los suponen vencidos,
que vuestros hijos tengan comida en abundancia
y ustedes posean buenos vestidos para el frio.

Espero que esten estudiando
lo que otros consideran pasado de moda,
que hallan descubierto misterios
a lo largo de su vida solitaria.

Espero se conserven ardientes,
inconformes, descontentos…
Espero que esten mas pagados,
y ni un alumno este quieto.
