First Day at School

First Day at School

Remember the day when
you first entered the school
with whimpers and wails?

Cheerful morning greetings lisped
to the welcoming teachers
who intently looked fresh faces.

Some patterned joy with toys
and were hailed by playful peers
for their doughty deed.

Parents stayed back near the gates
to catch glimpse of their munchkins
whose tears rolled down the cheeks.

Chafed knees got gauzed
and a candy would suffice
to allay the day’s doldrums.

Only few were prepared
as spunky for this new world
and run happily around.
