SURPRISED DELIGHT - FIRST TERM WITH MRS CHESHIRE CHAILEY 195? Looking back I can see patience In dealing with a lonely child, By some it was a duty And others contagious joy. I remember surprised delight In History, the Black Prince, the Feudal system and strip farming. Music, folk songs and church hymns. Geography, exotic lands With fabulous names and Mountains, seas, rivers and deserts And I was a traveller, an explorer. English, language and literature, Shakespeare, poetry, books That drowned me with pleasure; And I was awash in words That opened the windows Of the mind and let in light. Light, colours, life.
