Dr. Ritchie’s poem “A Celebration of Community Service”

Dr. Ritchie's poem

Martin Narciso

Most schools are made nervous
By community service;
So Wayland, again, is unique.
Out into the sun goes, well, everyone,
To clean up roads, fields, lots, and creeks.

I find it inspiring (and a little bit tiring)
To imagine the planning this takes.
My role’s supervisory–I’ve lost my Advisory;
But can anyone lend me a rake?

Enjoy spring, enjoy this good thing.

-Dr. John Ritchie
