Setting Off


Hands were waved and kisses blown
As the bus slowly pulled away
Chattering and excited, the happy throng
At the start of a brand new day

As their innocence drifts to adulthood
They might recall this youthful heaven
They might remember the golden days
When they were only six or seven

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
