Pull your sock up

Pull your socks up (boy/girl)

But why (sir/miss)

Because

Met with a sigh


This images represent play and a morning of joyfulness

Running and skipping

with less than a care

Seeking opportunities

to take risks and dare

Catching your breath

With red cheeks

Like a beacon of fun

A sign this couple now seeks


Hiding behind benches

Look outs beware

For your glimpse at them

May come with a stare


Spotted, you run

Find a new place to sneak

In quiet voices

You whisper to speak


“Found you” I hear

And the game moves on

The collective play on


The bell goes

They retreat to their class

Queue excitedly

For learning to pass
