DO YOU REMEMBER

DO YOU REMEMBER

(school section 5;1/2 built in 1868
Harwich, it's still there, on the way
to Erieau.

The old red brick country school I remember
In fond memory,
My old school desk initial carved I remember
Without regret,
Our opening school prayer each day I remember
In humility,
The feared rod of correction I remember
And cannot forget,
The cold trek to school in winter snow I remember
And wished for spring,
The school lessons hard taught I remember
Though not welcome then,
The steepled bell heard form miles around I remember
It's familiar ring,
The honey pail I used to carry lunch I remember
Filled with flavored gem,
Summer days when school let out I remember
The restless soul was free,
Many other people , times and things I remember
With deep yearnings,
In this passing life I will yet remember these
In happy revere.
