Ring the Bell for me

Richard Groff 1957 (Pottstown, Pa.)



The playground bell went off again
We got to play and see our friends
And then back into class we went
To learn the lessons, we were sent

Now some were harder than the rest
It made it hard to pass the test
But pass the test; I know I will
It is God’s plan; mine to fulfill
