Pencils

Have you a knack for sharpening pencils?
Few can do it right.
Without patience and know-how
you’ll break the thin graphite.

Do you like the sound of scribble?
It sure takes you back to school
Headteachers seemed so frightening
The big boys seemed so cool.

Do you remember playing softball
On a waspy summers day?
Precious moments leave behind
Memories that stay.
