School Daze

School Daze
By Pauline Harris

Excited and nervous 
Headed out the door
Backpack and lunch
Ready to go
Long walk 
Out the door
By the house
With colourful roses
Dogs barking
Way over there
Keep quiet 
Keep on task
No need to wake 
Others up
But too late
Run passed them
Or walk calmly
Peacefully
To ourselves
Be respectful 
We are guests
Not all friendly
Names called
Many forgotten 
Eggs thrown
Shells and gooey mess
They run after us
Wanting to fight
Keep on walking
Running at times
Clean up later
Mustn’t miss the bus
Make it to the bus stop
Five minutes to wait
Take a deep breath
And step onto the bus
Try to get the window seat
To gaze outside
Forget those names 
Compose ourselves
We are guest
We represent ours
Respecting each other
We kept our promise 
As best we could
The view from the bus
Gave us time
We needed
To ready ourselves 
For the day at school

One Round Corner

Welcome! This infinitesimal corner of the web is a place where my fairy tales, poems, and images collect and remind me of where I've been. Enjoy and feel free to comment on your parallel existence! Peter Ellis

Contemplative Viewfinder

Faith is like looking through the viewfinder of a camera; it helps us see differently.
