school life

A Poem by pragya gaur
"

Few months later it's an end of my school life....so I decided to write one describing my glorious 12 years there

"
A home away from home,
Is how I merily define a school.
Running in silent corridors,
Not wanting to go in morning assemblies,
Finishing lunch while teacher's teaching,
Passing chits when they caught us gossiping.
Our tiffin boxes were empty before recess,
Fun was snatching other's lunch then.
Years later don't know will these be remembered or not,
But those 'samosas of canteen' will really be missed a lot.
When teachers said " go out if you don't want to study"
We looked at each other to ask if they are ready.
We will really miss kabaddi and volley ball matches,
Between seniors and juniors.
Those lovely days of early ages,
And the open books with curly pages.
I will really miss each and every class,
Whether nursery or twelfth.
We will really miss,
The boring exercise of Saturdays,
And the 'Arora patties' on roadways.
We were sent to gain knowledge,
But we had all sorts of fun and games.
To teachers sending us out of class was a punishment,
But for us it was full source of entertainment.
Those lazy mornings and the lame reasons for not going to school,
Those fading school uniforms and opened shoe laces,
Those half opened eyes and closing school gates.
Few months later all won't be there.
Just a cherished memory,
Is going to become.




I wish I could live those days once again

I loved reading this :-)
So innocent and sweet are school days.
I'm a school teacher, and only wish that my students have memories such as these. Isn't it a shame we never hear things like this :-( I would recombine sending it to your old teachers or school, they would appreciate it.
Well done xo

The journey endured through learning.
But probably the most important years in your life.
They sort of define who you are now.
If we could go back and change anything. What would it be.

Wow. No words to say how good I feel to read this one. I love these lines the most
When teachers said " go out if you don't want to study"
We looked at each other to ask if they are ready.
