YESTERDAY'S SCHOOL

by Gene Minix

We stood at the window,
Our class of eleven and three.
Each and every school day morning
That is where we'd be.

To watch Old Glory raised
High upon the pole.
It was a special event
That never grew old.

We crossed our hearts
And saluted that beautiful flag.
We sung MY COUNTRY 'TIS OF THEE
And our zeal never did lag.

We went to our desks
And from the Bible our teacher read.
And she talked the Golden Rule
And then prayer was said.

How we need schools today
Like they were in days gone by.
Where the Bible was read
And our flag proudly raised high.
