Crystal Bell

May 30, 2008
By Sarah Lee, Congers, NY

We wait for that bell to ring,
The bell that brings joy
And crystal sounds around us.
Until that bell,
Everyone is silent and dead
So dead
No life, no breathe
Just dead
We wait for it to ring,
To bring us back to life
We wait patiently with our eyes closed
Dead silent
Three, two, one
We are revived
Everyone comes back to life
We swarm out the door
Like hungry fishes
Hungry for life and freedom
And we leave that place
That we call school.
