School time

Hey guys, I found some of my old poems today. Not too old, really. I scribbled them in the fall of 2003, when I was just 22. Then I lost them. Being the messy kind, that I am. Writing on scraps and then throwing the pieces around. I luckily retrieved them today and here... I share with you the first!

Where fun hangs in air
and ideas take their root
Where hands learn to draw
and world starts to unfold
Where chalks roll the year long
and mind opens for a lifetime
Where bells toll a welcome break
and manners make a man
where teachers help you tread
and life takes a shape
Where friends share secrets
and hearts flutter aloud
Where words fly past
and legs run and slide
Where benches, boards and books
never fail to tire
Where ties, tunics and tricks
always are a must

Where first sweet crushes
turn you red in cheeks
School, school, school
nicest time of my life

A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.

Poetry is the music of the soul, and, above all, of great and feeling souls.

I love this poem.

A cool poem. It greatly reflects the child in you. Never let it die. Not many people can do that.

Glad u r the one.

I am happy that you found the poems. Needless to say such beautiful lines deserve to be read by many. It would have been a shame had you lost the absolutely wonderful -- and innocent -- treasure!
