Poetry Month Prompt: #4/30 CHILDHOOD by Jen Pezzo

Children playing four square at recess,Hanging from the jungle gym, jumping from swings.
I was content to have long conversations with Mrs. Dickinson,
Listening in total admiration to our 2nd grade teacher.
Didn’t like it much when I had to switch schools or when I
Heard that the school burned down in the middle of the night
On the news after dinner
One evening. I couldn’t stop crying, which frustrated my
Grandfather to no end;
“Don’t you understand? She wasn’t THERE!”
