First Day At School - Poem by Roger McGough

A millionbillionwillion miles from home
Waiting for the bell to go. (To go where?)
Why are they all so big, other children?
So noisy? So much at home they
Must have been born in uniform
Lived all their lives in playgrounds
Spent the years inventing games
That don't let me in. Games
That are rough, that swallow you up.

And the railings.
All around, the railings.
Are they to keep out wolves and monsters?
Things that carry off and eat children?
Things you don't take sweets from?
Perhaps they're to stop us getting out
Running away from the lessins. Lessin.
What does a lessin look like?
Sounds small and slimy.
They keep them in the glassrooms.
Whole rooms made out of glass. Imagine.

I wish I could remember my name
Mummy said it would come in useful.
Like wellies. When there's puddles.
Yellowwellies. I wish she was here.
I think my name is sewn on somewhere
Perhaps the teacher will read it for me.
Tea-cher. The one who makes the tea.

First-day-at-school Poems

  1. September, The First Day Of School

    I My child and I hold hands on the way to school, And when I leave him at the first-grade door He cries a little but is brave; he does Let go. My selfish tears remind me how I cried before that door a life ago. I may have had a hard time letting go. Each fall the children must endure together What every child also endures alone: Learning the alphabet, the integers, Three dozen bits and pieces of a stuff So arbitrary, so peremptory, That worlds invisible and visible Bow down before it, as in Joseph's dream The sheaves bowed down and then the stars bowed down Before the dreaming of a little boy. That dream got him such hatred of his brothers As cost the greater part of life to mend, And yet great kindness came of it in the end. II A school is where they grind the grain of thought, And grind the children who must mind the thought. It may be those two grindings are but one, As from the alphabet come Shakespeare's Plays, As from the integers comes Euler's Law, As from the whole, inseperably, the lives, The shrunken lives that have not been set free By law or by poetic phantasy. But may they be. My child has disappeared Behind the schoolroom door. And should I live To see his coming forth, a life away, I know my hope, but do not know its form Nor hope to know it. May the fathers he finds Among his teachers have a care of him More than his father could. How that will look I do not know, I do not need to know. Even our tears belong to ritual. But may great kindness come of it in the end. Anonymous submission.

  2. Haiku - First Day At School

    first day at school the other children look into me for sign of similar fear inspired by First Day at School A millionbillionwillion miles from home Waiting for the bell to go. (To go where?) Why are they all so big, other children? So noisy? So much at home they Must have been born in uniform Lived all their lives in playgrounds Spent the years inventing games That don't let me in. Games That are rough, that swallow you up. And the railings. All around, the railings. Are they to keep out wolves and monsters? Things that carry off and eat children? Things you don't take sweets from? Perhaps they're to stop us getting out Running away from the lessins. Lessin. What does a lessin look like? Sounds small and slimy.

I wish she was here. I think my name is sewn on somewhere Perhaps the teacher will read it for me. Tea-cher. The one who makes the tea. Roger McGough #19

  3. First Day In School

    I am as invisible as the wind... no one knows me but they know i'm around... they don't talk to me, they'd rather look at the ground... soo i'm the outcast of the class... some look through me as though i'm made of glass... But i like it this way.. i don't know why but it sort of made my day... i sit alone all the time... to me i think they are all slime... Snobbery in my part i guess... or maybe i'm just in a lonely mess... whatever it is, i should start talking... simply because assignments are coming... But who would talk to a weirdo like me? looks like i have to put on my mask for them to see...

  4. My First Day At School(***a Real Experience***)

    Oh, it came so fast like a speedy train, in the month of heavy rain, when the birds of joy just flew away, and my heartbeat rose up each day. the vacations were over and, there was no more time to play in sand, but of course you know what that was, it was my school reopening day as it is. That day morn when I woke up, thought if i had a ever or hiccup, lazy and unwilling, of course, of huss, made it to the waiting bus. As the speed of bus went high, i sank back to the seat with a sigh, at last whe i walked down to school, i never knew to use what tool. As my school came closer, I became more more dozer, but wait! now that at school i was, noone knows the tension a girl has. When i stepped in to my class, My courage broke like a breaking glass, but when i found out i wasn't alone, and found news friends to adorn, for first school became a heaven! * when i was going on to my 5th class to a new school. of course i made a lot of friends and my shyness left me and i am now first at school
