First Day To School

It is a winter morning
The sun is arisen in the East
To the God I'm praying
In a splendour dawn, full of mist.
'Let me stay well, let my wish be fulfilled'
To the God I urge my will.

I'm both anxious and curious
As its my first day to the school
'My son, go now' asks my mother pious
And I go wearing a sweater made of wool
'I shall not go, I shall not go', I shout
Listening thrilling stories from other's mouth.

Beating or grasping ears in own hand-
All punishing methods are well-known
'Do the home-work and reach before band',
One said 'otherwise ups and downs'.
Yet I had to go school being gloomy
Leaving fear behind, carrying hope dreamy.

At last I'm under the roof of the school
Somewhat coyness, somewhat fear
So beautiful my school beside a pool
As if, the garden called me as 'dear'
Emitting its fragrance all around
That very day by the school I was bound.

First day to School- the feelings and experiences have been so nicely inscribed having haunting expression with nice penmanship. The fearedness and hesitation of first going child is memorable. It may be quoted... At last I'm under the roof of the school Somewhat coyness, somewhat fear So beautiful my school beside a pool As if, the garden called me as 'dear' Emitting its fragrance all around That very day by the school I was bound. Brilliant poem beautifully presented. Thanks.
I love this. It has its message and form intact. Shows the poet's diligence with poetry. A deserving ten.
It is a good poem indeed, but I really think that the grammar of the poem should be corrected.
