.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 Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
