Visiting The Castle

(inspiration: photo of spiral steps in a castle plus memories)

I collected my backpack
With some pencils and sketchbook
Rolls, cheese, and juice
Ready for the day away
Onto the bus along with the class
Our trip to the castle
Included walking all around
So crowded was this day
People walking closely together
Called to walk up the steps
In the tower with the ropes on both sides
Tiny steps leading up, up to the top
Small windows every fifty steps or more
Barely showing the way up
Using the ropes to guide the way
Finally I make to the top
Only to find out I must
Go back down the same way
