First Day of School

Barefoot o’re the dusty pathway

Through the pasture, was the rule

Skipped the girl with brunette pigtails

As she hurried off to school
Ah, the summer filled with daydreams

Hailed her with its final call

Breezes yielded July’s sweetness

To ripened hints of early fall
Deep inhale, she sniffed the pencils 

As the sharpener ground the wood

Buried nose into her textbooks

Smelling knowledge to be learned
Classroom chatter all around her

Catching up on summer fun

Couldn’t rival her excitement

Of a new school year begun
Bother math, it still confounds her

Language arts, she wanted more

Reading, writing, singing, playing

Timeless knowledge didn’t bore 
Oh those sacred childhood memories

Held forever in her heart

Well from deep within her being

As her own, their school now start
