Back To School July Contest

Back to school excitement
Memories from long ago
Spring flowers sprouting.

Roaring school busses
At the crack of dawn
In expectation first day of school.

Everybody's wearing new clothes
Adorning new sneakers
Chatter filling the hallways.

Many hating to return
Others joyous to be back
Old friends new friends happy greeting.

Last few words: 
I'm taking brain training to help my backwardness. Hopefully my poetry writing will be better. Did it work.

This is a fine poem and it excites me with your excitement in learning.

I couldn't have had a better mentor. You are number 1 on my list of favorite people and poet. Glad you like the poem. It was a rush job getting in

Thank you for your entry. As usual I expect the judge will have a hard time closing among the entries. BTW, you forgot to put (July contest) next to title which makes it easier for the judge to spot it. Have fun over there in Hawaii...........stan
