My Alma Mater

A school of excellence

The school I went

seems to be different

way back in the sixties

there were a freedom and a strictness

found with a lot of references

the no uniform code is one such

kept us in a board  and stretched

like butterflies with bright feathers

we went to school in all colours

no shoes  we wore but slippers alone

as our place  has a warm tone

our feet never perspired profusely

nor smelt  bad and felt  swanky

our hair was tightly plaited  into two

and ribbons were tied around  them

flowers were strewn together  in a string

adorned our hair in a beautiful swing

the teachers were kind and  effective

gave us a lot of space to turn reflective

they  taught us not only the subjects

also made us understand the objects around

my alma mater  was an excellent place to study

extends stillSchool an invasive knowledge and wisdom steady

am greatly indebted to the school of great merit

made me a woman of strength with  wholesome credit.
