The Old School Building

The old school building from childhood
Changed now ~a nursing home
Laughter echoes "pon the warm breeze
Children some now don't roam

Years separated me from here
The building has improved
The grounds are much the same as then
Gone are see-saws that moved

Gone is the fun merry-go-round
Where accidents happened
Life as a whole has surely changed
Thinking of those actions

Life sometimes goes full circle
This school from years bygone
Ancestors whose offsprings in home
Once lived, learned, and moved on

    Emotional and nicely flowing free verse. Schools always cause this longing feeling. I think of "my" Boston colleges every day.

    Sara, after reading this I found myself meandering into melancholy thoughts from too many years ago. My thoughts grow more precious after a period of aging. Thanks for bringing back some still treasured thoughts from long ago.... Jake

    It's good to reminisce on things like this. By doing a poem in the memory of them, they can live on.
