Scenes from a School Day


That moment I catch
The shy, silent one
Gleefully bouncing on a balance ball
Before her partners settle her down to work

The stifled snickers
Of children pretending to nap
So they can fool their late-coming classmates

The layers of clutter on the wall
Advertising the work
Of young hands, hearts
Minds

The smiles of my writers who now
Finally get
How to do what they do,
Only better

The girl who returns at dismissal
Just because it’s good
To have an extra hug
For the road

Make thegrading
theplanning
thepolitics
themeetings
thephonecalls
theworkshops
theweekends
thelatenights
theearlymornings

Worth
The price of
Admission.
