POEM OF THANKS – VEGMIN LANGUAGE LEARNER
Below is a poem written by Dana Roman, who is an ELL learner and volunteer with the VegMin Learning Society in Vegreville. Holly Cependa, Executive Director, shared this moving poem, and commented, “We were brought to tears as she read it out loud on the last day of ELL classes in June 2010 . . .”
At VegMin I found confidence in my proper forces . . .
VegMin helped me to defeat fear of unknown . . .
VegMin offered me support in the new world . . .
Here I found courage to speak a new language . . .
Here I made new friends . . .
This is just one message carried by the wind . . .
Thank You for each lesson . . .
Thank You for encouragements . . .
Thank You for smiles and each day spent here . .
My words are too few and any language is poor in words to express my appreciation . . .
For all this and many others, I want to say Thank You!
