I wanted to learn everything
++Brush College Elementary,
++1st grade is a mystery,
++please take me to the library,
++I want to try the hard BOOKs..

Miss Williamson’s my TEACHER’s name
I wanted to learn everything
Ben and Trevor: my best mates,
we wanted to learn everything
++we print our letters, work some math,
++sit for stories with our class,
++there’s a turtle in the tank in back,
++but I forget his name..
++++QUIZ me now, do I still know how,
+++++every day to be amazed?
++++quiz me now, have I forgotten how
+++++to be proud of the smallest things?
++++++quiz me now..
