When teacher rang the hand bell,
the students knew that it was time
to open the books of wisdom
and maybe learn to write a rhyme.
It was more than just an honor
to have such knowledge shared with them–
where to look for the Milky Way
and how the walrus learned to swim.
Today, my grandkids go to school
with heavy backpacks on their backs–
thick books with greater knowledge–
cutting paths beyond grandma’s tracks.
But who can say which way is better–
handwritten note or cell phone text?
This grandma can only wonder
what on earth will they think of next?

  1. Love the poem as I think those who didn’t grow up with high tech gadgets wonder what kids may or may not be missing. I have to unplug and have quiet time. Love the picture of a grandchild texting while riding???


  2. This one is Day Six of photo101 — moving right along. 🙂
