CCC214: Hey-Ho!

Hey-ho, hey-ho
Across that tree we go
We’ve heard the bell’s brassy chime
Telling us it’s now school time
So put away that muddy ball
And you be careful you don’t fall!


Inspired by my father’s memory. There used to be stepping stones here when he was at the village school. He remembers the kids kicking around a ball and waiting for the school bell to call. I wonder how many times they arrived in class with wet feet!

    Many years ago, when my partner and I went on our first vacation together, we took a hike along Massanutten Mountain in Virginia. The path crossed streams several times, and most of the time it was a downed tree trunk that served as a ford. We came to the first such ford, and her reaction was simple: “No.”
    She actually did cross, and did so again several more times on the way and way back, sadly falling in on the last one. No hurts, though.
