The Old Class Room

My old class room may I always

remember the memories you

gave me so many years ago.

How could I forget you Miss Johnson

my 3rd grade teacher, the teacher

I ever had, who made me believe in myself,

teaching me so many things that I never forgot.

You were my teacher at Davis Grade School

in Grinnell Iowa, who was a friend

to a shy little kid, who all the other kids made fun of,

because I was the new kid in class.

Would like to go back to Davis Grade School

and pay the old class room a visit, knowing

that you have been gone for many years now,

I will never forget you Miss Johnson or that

old class room.
