POEM: "All Summer In A Day"

All Summer In A Day

Parade of fading dreams
see the children etched in
acid treatment of school-bags
bosses sigh already know
their recruits are unready
though Eleanor may demur
still playing at the seaside
left at the edge of the world
to taste the fire and the pity
to learn that the starfish
is neither fish nor star
& every day changes a little.
