.5. New Blazer


I remember my new blazer
Looking sharp in royal blue
I remember just how smart I felt
A school badge sewn on too

I remember how I brushed it down
Then hung it on a rail
I remember always wearing it
For exams I didn’t fail

I remember my friend Michael
Said my blazer was too bright
I remember how he called me names
Until we had a fight

I remember I was winning
As we rolled upon the ground
I remember losing all my change
Some other boy now found

I remember losing its newness
Grubby sleeves with its collar all black
I remember jumping the railings
Got it caught and ripped right up its back

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
