School Days

where did they go - days rusty with recall 
segments of memory here and there
vacant at times
youth was on my side - wanting knowledge
like siblings - wanting to grow up
explore independence - to read
so wanted to ride the yellow bus   

pot holes filled with snowdrifts 
and mud puddles - such a long ride
to get smart and make friends
school seemed so far away
I tired with lack of sleep - making stops
adding friends to ride the distance

I liked that school allowed play time
but also insisted a nap before math 
no fussing - the day was long 
I welcomed the new curriculum

reading was more difficult - hearing poor
my struggle for sounds to read Dick and Jane
to understand and to grasp  
recalling now - it was so hard

I can relate hamper was poor eyesight. Couldn't afford glasses so had to be seated close to the chalkboard. I enjoyed your journey down memory lane! : )
