One edge
hanging over the mountain--
the Milky Way


boisterous children
with new school pens
and conkers on strings

This one was clearly not written in the States...What's a "conker"?

Hi Diana.

A conker is the fruit of the Horse Chestnut. Tied with a string through the middle it makes for a playground sport in autumn, though I believe it is about to be banned as 'dangerous'

Ah, and so it seems has gone the way of much old-fashioned fun...
