Sharing my #poem that I wrote in school parking lot as I waited to pick up my daughter so many years ago. Waiting for your child to come home from school is such sweet joy. My heart weeps that so many families in #UvaldeTX won’t have their child coming home. It’s heart-breaking.
‘Tis two o’clock!
Children pouring forth from school gates
These are my Jelly Belly jelly beans, and you can’t have any. They’re all MINE! Photographed and eaten by Brandon Dilbeck on August 30, 2006. See also Image:JellyBellyPile.JPG Image:EndlessSeaOfJellyBeans.jpg Image:RedJellyBean.jpg (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
Like jelly beans spilling out
In red, yellow, and lime green
Their moods reflecting
The day that’s been
Substitute who was mean
Math was exciting and nutrition?
Boring as lima bean
Pouring out unevenly, not one by one
Manners forgotten in
Eagerness to go home
Tiny jelly beans in red, yellow, green
Looking happy, grumpy, sad, and mean
There comes mine
In perfect aquamarine!
PS – I wrote this poem in the school parking lot as I was waiting
to pick up my daughter from Elementary School, several years ago.
