First Day Of School,




She started school this morning,


and she seemed so very small.


As I walked there beside her


in the Kindergarten hall.



And as she took her place beside


the others in the class,


I realized how all too soon


those first few years can pass.



Remembering, I saw her as


she first learned how to walk.


The words that we alone made out


when she began to talk.



This little girl so much absorbed


in learning how to write.


It seems as though she must have grown


to girlhood overnight.



My eyes were blurred by hastily


I brushed the tears away


lest by some word or sign of mine


I mar her first big day.



Oh how I longed to stay with her


and keep her by the hand


to lead her through the places


that she couldn't understand.



And something closely kin to fear


was mingled with my pride.


I knew she would no longer be


a baby by my side.



But she must have her chance to live,


to work her problems out,


the privilege to grow and learn


what life is all about.



And I must share my little girl


With friends and work and play;


she's not a baby anymore


she's in Kindergarten today.
