Good Old Golden Rule Days

Past these ivied walls
and through these hallowed halls

Two generations, three
 learned their "times" and ABC.

Now occupied by ghosts
and memories of hosts

of superannuated"boys" and "girls,"
and bats, and birds, and mice, and squirrels.

All good things give way
To better things in their day.




Madison Township, Tipton County, Indiana

Still standing, though barely.

My place of learning was torn down and a more modern structure built. Progress, I suppose.

Vee, all three of the elementary schools I attended are long gone. Maybe PoF is still standing?

Vee, also the building where my first three years of high school: gone.

PoF is still standing tough not a school anymore.

This resonates well with me. I attended K-12 in the same building. That edifice has not been used for many decades. Still the structure stands.

Chuck, the building where I attended my first two years, now gone, was standing a few years ago. Similar style, somewhat larger. I wrote about it seven years ago (which you saw.) http://vanilla-ststt.blogspot.com/2010/06/second-grade.html
