The School of Time

I’ve attended this school
For such a long time,
Knowing that I will grow old
And graduate,
Take leave of stories we’ve told,
Songs we played by ear
And games we’ve won and lost.
At the end, when the last chapter’s read,
When the villain is dead and the heroine wed,
Let me sleep with the year book
Of the school from which I must part
Laid close to my heart.

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads’ Play It Again, Toads!

On Saturday, Kerry invited us to Play it Again, Toads! where archived challenges of the Imaginary Garden come to life again. She suggested three, from which I have chosen The Poetry in a Quote, Susie’s Bits of Inspiration from April 13, 2015 for my post, which is somewhat late due to other pressing commitments.
