IMAGINE

Imagine there’s no tension,

It’s easy if you try,

No reductionist thinking,

Not asking “how?”, but “why?”

Imagine all the trainees,

Preparing easily…

***

Imagine there’s no conflict,

It isn’t hard to do,

No ground for disagreement,

Between them and you,

Imagine all the trainees,

Seeing eye to eye…

***

You may say I’m a dreamer,

But I’m not the only one,

I hope someday you’ll join us,

And help make teacher training fun.

***

Imagine no prescription,

I wonder if you can,

no need for ritualistic teaching,

A sense that “yes, you can“,

Imagine all the trainees,

Growing their own way…

***

You may say I’m a dreamer,

And I guess that may be true,

But if you simplify your training,

Who knows what your trainees could do?
