Remember -

Round your Os like a neat, round ball,

Make your sticks stand straight and tall,

Sit up straight and quietly wait -

Never, ever turn up late.


Wash your hands and scrub your knees,

Comb your hair. Remember these

Rules and you will learn with ease;

Parents and teachers you will please.


Make no messy crossings out,

Know what your work is all about.

If you're careful and you try,

Soon you'll be as good as I!


If these hints you don't flout,

If corrected you don't pout,

You'll do well and soon find out

Praise is fun, have no doubt.

      Such good advise!

      My grandson starts school next year so hope he has all the above in check. If not the school he will be attending will see to it.

      Pleased his parents have enrolled him into a private school where strict rules must be adhered to.

      Nice hub!

      I think I am ready to start, now. I'll make sure to look both ways, and wait for the crossing guard before I cross the street.

      LadyLyell: Yes, in our permissive society it is so important that children learn that 'fences' around them are for their own protection and that it gives them security.

      Kamalesh050: Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed it. It is so important that children have a positive experience when they first begin school and then, most likely, they will go on in the years ahead and learn to the best of their ability.

      WD Curry 111: Because of the sign they carry, we often call them Lollypop Lady or Lollypop Man here, but it's important to keep your own eyes open, too. Good for you!

      always exploring: Thank you for your comments. I think that the flow and rhythm of a poem is important, but it's not always so easy to attain.

      Eiddwen: Dear Eddy, thank you! I am enjoying today - I've even been sitting outside in the sunshine doing a sudoku puzzle! At the moment it is such a warm, gentle autumn. Unfortunately for all those who go away camping at Easter, it's forecast to change in a few days, so I'm making the most if it now. I wish you a lovely day, too.

      hahaha I loved it:)I really liked beaucse despite its length and simplicity, I get a great visual, probably beaucse I have a ton of crap in my car too (like shoes I actually found my cowboy boots under my front seat the other day). One of the things I think makes poems successful is its ability to make readers relate, and this poem definitely has that quality.
