First Day at School

“First Day at School” is a simple delightful poem that makes the reality of every kid's first school experience. The poem was penned by Aileen Fisher who has put on her ideas as a typical thought of a child going to school for the very first time. The poem is very engaging with an easy understanding of the school atmosphere and the oscillation of thought like how the teacher, colleagues, and other students do at their very first time at school.

I wonder 

if my drawing

will be as good as theirs.

I wonder

if they’ll like me

or just be full of stares.

I wonder

if my teacher

will look like Mom or Gran.

I wonder

if my puppy will wonder

where I am.
