Among School Children Poem with Lyrics
I walk through the long schoolroom questioning;
A kind old nun in a white hood replies;
The children learn to cipher and to sing,
To study reading-books and history,
To cut and sew, be neat in everything
In the best modern way the childrens eyes
In momentary wonder stare upon
A sixty-year-old smiling public man.
This poem is written by William Butler Yeats in 1926 after visiting a convent school.
It's all about the amusing activities he saw in a school.
Kids learn and enjoy the lyrics of the poem.
