Recess in the Playground

The school bell rings, we all get up from our seats, Like ladies and gentlemen, and walk out into the hall. There's no running allowed in the halls Or the teacher will send us straight to the principal's office. I couldn't wait to get out on the playground for recess. The most fun to do, is playing together with friends. I run towards the low-hanging swings Shouting, Yes! Higher, higher reaching for the sky. We’re laughing and yelling as we go, round and round Holding on tight to the bars on the merry-go-round So, we won't fall off with high-speed. The seesaw is the best. I sit at one end And my friend on the other, up in the air Up and down, up and down, and feel the hard Thump on our rumps as it hits the ground. We all wait in line to climb up the ladder Waiting for our turn on the slide. Some of my friends picked sides to play baseball, Others basketball. Rrrring. We turn to the sound of the school bell. Shucks. It's time to go end. 6/22/2021

Love your descriptive verses on recess. I was a teacher, and the class itched to get out. Well done,, Pangie

How well I remember those days, Eve. We had a huge boulder in front of our school that we climbed on. I'm sure they would have fenced it off nowadays out of safety concerns.
