Teacher appreciation

I don't want soap
Nope.
I've got all the candles
I can handle.
There is only one scent
I care to wear.
I don't need lotions or potions.
Another frame
will drive me insane.
No, no note holders.
Refrain from a keychain.
Flowers molder.
Of items my desk is full.
But if you feel the pull
of a kindly gesture,
Rest assured
I'd take a peek
or even a look
at a book.

National Teacher Appreciation Week is May 4-10 this year.
