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

A Nature Recital

party line

 

Birds sitting on pier post

reciting a simple song

where are the fish

is the path long

 

They observe life

rest for a few

the waters are calm

the day is new

 

Along comes a storm

disturbing their peace

time to fly away

the waves increase

 

Rain is falling

thunder in the clouds

lightening strikes down

the recital is loud

 

The oceans begins to calm

the birds appear again

reciting a melody

time for fishing to begin

 

There is a small breeze

joining in the recital

beautiful harmony

in a nature revival
