A Play Class

A dozen cute playful gazes
   Stare innocently, the dimple face
Sweet voiced teacher gleefully sings
   Enthralling her little spellbound audience
Excitement builds as voices rise
   Keenness to learn is the big prize
Die is cast for a new generation
   Bright lit faces holler in unison
Each day spent in easy erudition
    Having great fun in playful education
How I wish, I was a child again
  Be in this class and frolic with disdain

PS-This poem is a tribute to my fellow blogger who have given me a few accolades in form of their awards! I treasure each one of them and I only do not pass them around as I consider some of the blogger far more creative, skillful and stand towering above me! Also, for me the journey is only a few months old.In this constellation of stars, I find myself still not equipped well enough to hand these down to so many great writers I have come across! I treat myself as a student attending a Kindergarten school!Thanks a lot once again!

    Wonderful poem and I'm chuckling at the inspiration of you considering yourself to be in writer's kindergarten school!
