Those Old School Days - Poem by Jayne Davies

Lost amongst a sea of faces,
The day has dawned,
A young heart races,
Summer holidays are over,
It's back to school,
Girls looking chic!
Boys acting cool!
Then mixed with the bunch,
The bully appears,
With menacing grin,
Some poor boys in tears,
He roams the school playground,
To spoil someone's day,
Like a Buzzard he waits,
To stake out his prey,
It's a time to be noticed,
A time to fit in,
Days we remember,
Where friendships begin,
We look back and wonder,
How did we survive?
But those old school days,
Were the best days of our lives!

    A great poem, when you leave school the time just seems
    to fly by.
