One Room Schoolhouse- an homage to Dylan Thomas
Mattmckeown

It was my understanding that is not failed
 1
took to my knowing from early age schoolhouse did
 2
    And the books piled and the room
 3
            insisted more
 4
        The teacher beckons
 5
With order saying and call of schoolbell and look
 6
And the smell of school books on the hard wood desk
 7
        Myself to get took
 8
            That second
 9
to the still teaching room and set down.
 10
 
 
    My first day began with the room-
 11
kids and the older kids of the advanced years calling my name
 12
    Around the pole and the white flag
 13
            And I rose
 14
        In doing homage
 15
And talked toward it a crowd of all my peers.
