those sleepy Monday mornings
and the long walk to school
arriving late and cold always.
those warm Friday evenings
when we gushed out the school gates
and spent the rest of the day glued to TV
those Saturday summer afternoon
when mom dressed us up
and walked us to the pastry shop
those cold Sunday winter mornings
when dad broke the wooden boxes down to pieces
and built a bonfire for us to sit around
those late Sunday evenings
when we packed our school bags
for another week, another tomorrow.
