.5. Itchy Pants


I remember my grey flannel shorts
What an itchy woollen hell
I remember they went past my knees
And didn’t fit too well

I remember being the only one
To have this unique fashion
I remember how they chafed my legs
I hated them with passion

I remember always scratching
Teachers told me stop that please
I remember how my pals all moved
They all thought I’d got fleas

I remember trying to lose them
When I changed for sport at school
I remember things went missing
But not these things you fool

I remember sliding down a hill
Till I wore the backside through
I remember feeling so relieved
For the long ones lined brand new

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
