Essay On Memorable Day In My School Life Poem

April is National Poetry Month, and to celebrate it we’re asking you to write about your own experiences with verse. What poems do you remember hearing or reading, whether in early childhood or in English class last week? Do you like poetry in general? Do you have a favorite poet? Have you ever written a poem?

In an essay for the Book Review, “Oprah Magazine’s Adventures in Poetry,” David Orr writes about the April issue of O: The Oprah Magazine, which is devoted to poetry:

The signs of the coming apocalypse are many, but none are starker than this Web headline in the April issue of O: The Oprah Magazine: “Spring Fashion Modeled by Rising Young Poets.” Yes. Spring fashion. Modeled. By rising young poets. There follows a photomontage of attractive younger women — some of whom are rising poets mostly in the “I get up in the morning” sense, but all of whom certainly look poetic — in outfits costing $472 to $5,003. This is all part of O’s special issue celebrating National Poetry Month, edited by the noted verse aficionado Maria Shriver and including interviews with “all-star readers” like Bono, Ashton Kutcher, the gossip columnist Liz Smith and someone named James Franco, who is apparently an actor.

Students: Tell us about your own experiences with poetry, positive or negative, and about any memorable poems you’ve encountered in your life. Do you like poetry in general? Why or why not? Have you ever written a poem? What would you do if you were assigned to help poetry reach a wider audience of people your own age? Why?

My First Day at School

My First Day at School :

A school is place of learning for a child. It is a training ground for him. Here he forms new associates, comes in contact with boys of different temperaments and forms new ideas and habits.


It is here that he prepares himself for the stage of life. So the right type of educational school is for great importance for him.


I was enrolled in a school at the age of five. It was a primary school. The memory of my first day in school is still fresh in my mind. It was a small school with eight rooms.


There were ten teachers including the physical instructor. The headmaster’s office was separate. The school had a compound with lush green lawns and flowers bedded.


My father took me to the headmaster’s office and got me admitted in the school. He gave me a packet of toffees to be distributed among my classmates.


My class teacher was very gentle. He encouraged me and treated me kindly. I felt a bit nervous in the new environment. The boys looked at me with wonder and smiled. I had with me English primer and got my first lesson in alphabet.


The bell for interval rang. The boys rushed out of the classrooms. Some of them gathered rounded me. They laughed at me and made fun of me. A few sympathized with me and befriended me. I had a novel experience.


The last bell went at three in the afternoon. All the boys felt very happy. I also took my bag and hurried back to my home.
