I went back to school
after many years of only passing
blinking yellow lights.
I went back to school to read —
to read silly poetry to first grade kids.
What fun we had together!
It was the best thing I’ve done
in a long, long time —
gratifying beyond all words.
I did not know that such pleasure
was so close at hand.
I will return again
to the smiles and laughter
of the little ones
who sat on the floor
and gifted me beyond measure.
