the trail of tears.

Standard

it was

a wonderful morning

filled with skating

and sliding

and parents

and teachers

and tumbles

and laughter

and happy screams

were heard

and

most of all

kids

just having fun

and sharing the day

and

after the mad fun

it was

 time to warm up

and enjoy treats

and then

some of the little ones

began to realize

 that parents

had to

head back to work

or home

and a bit of worry

set in

and

as we said goodbye

and hiked back

towards school

the tears flowed

and the wails were heard

and some

were

walking

and weeping

and clinging

as if

parting forever

and it was

dramatic

and

so full of love.

—-

ever has it been that love knows not its own depth

until the hour of separation.

blading, gliding – slipping, sliding

Standard

it was a morning spent with the kindergarten on an ice skating adventure. filled with tip-toeing on skates, scooting on boots, giving rides on cones, running on ice, holding hands, tumbling, crashing, laughing, noses running.

and all this, as our little hockey playing and figure skating kinders skate on by.

when it’s time to warm up with hot cocoa and donuts, they find themselves on equal ground, and they are all exhausted and so happy. and then, even our hockey players cry when it is time for moms and dads to leave, and for us to return to the cozy comfort of the circle rug in our classroom once more. and some of us feel newly discovered muscles in their legs the next day, that are apparently never used in this way, and take it real slow when going down the stairs.
