First Day To School


It is a winter morning
The sun is arisen in the East
To the God I'm praying
In a splendour dawn, full of mist.
'Let me stay well, let my wish be fulfilled'
To the God I urge my will.

I'm both anxious and curious
As its my first day to the school
'My son, go now' asks my mother pious
And I go wearing a sweater made of wool
'I shall not go, I shall not go', I shout
Listening thrilling stories from other's mouth.

Beating or grasping ears in own hand-
All punishing methods are well-known
'Do the home-work and reach before band',
One said 'otherwise ups and downs'.
Yet I had to go school being gloomy
Leaving fear behind, carrying hope dreamy.

At last I'm under the roof of the school
Somewhat coyness, somewhat fear
So beautiful my school beside a pool
As if, the garden called me as 'dear'
Emitting its fragrance all around
That very day by the school I was bound.

    I truly enjoyed this poem on the first day of school. Your first day
    can be very scary and gloomy. To leave the comforts of home and
    parents going to an unknown place is quite unnerving. Thankfully
    all will be better as the day wears on. Not so bad after all. Keep
    on penning. Very good. (Report) Reply
