    The leaves begin to turn;

    We go barefoot no more;

    September breezes whisper

    “School is at our door.”

    Telling Time at School

    We have been learning

    The way to tell time,

    Even when using

    A clock with no chime.

    The smaller hand tells us

    Which hour we mean.

    The larger one shows

    The minutes between.
