Carol Egbert’s Creed

Written at NELS 2007

In the first light of dawn, I find possibility,

In each child I meet, I see hope,

In the sound of rushing water, I hear anticipation.

Each spring, when the phoebes return, I learn constancy,

In the quiet of the meadow, I am embraced by solitude.

The ringing of the chime fills me with peace.

Being with those dear to me, reveals love.

Possibility, hope, anticipation, constancy,

Solitude, peace and love nourish me.
