A School Day

clock tower ms college

Students in the school house

time to recite again

going from class to class

where to begin


First is English

time to recite an adverb or two

trying to avoid the teacher

leaning down to tie a shoe


On to the next class

it is arithmetic

trying to solve a problem

listening to the clock tick


Then there is history

where has the time gone

reciting famous events

waiting for the bell tone


Finally a class to enjoy

music is in the air

the band practices outside

the day is cool and fair


Finally the bell rings

the day is at an end

reciting the weekend activities

with family and friends
