Boarding School Summer Scenes

aDOR_1784 copy


‘On The Boards’ blared from boarding school dorms,

fondly-recalled songs, sunny days in second form:

Rory* sang raucous rock, dressed in denim blues,

plaid shirt unpretentious, fully paid dues.

NSW tennis courts copy


Tennis balls bounce off taut racquet strings:

mini-skirted girls make male hearts ricochet ping;

well-practiced, sporty, athletic in their aversion,

tanned limbs and t-shirts tempt incursion.

Library stairs copy


Authors and artists in library beckoned,

I ascend stairs, my teen mind fecund:

biblio hush holy, few desks populated,

wood-panelled space vastly under-rated.
