Norwegian Farmer’s Son…February 11th

February 11th…“WHO WAS YOUR VERY FIRST GIRLFRIEND?”

#935 Kiester Grade School.

POEM – “Through These Grade School Doors” by N. Elliott Noorlun

Through these Grade School doors, And down the hall, I found my First Grade class.

I also found my feminine pal, A friendly little lass.

#161.2=Elliott and First Grade class; circa 1961
Marietta Lacher (LOCKER) is top right, with Elliott at the lower left.  Year was 1961.

Marietta Lacher was her name, I still remember well,

True, girls had germs, And maybe worms, But I still liked her, Can’t ya tell?

Though when I rode home, On our old bus, It was no easy task,

The High School boys, Made lots of noise, In the questions they would ask!

“Are you in love?”, “Is she your gal?”, They’d tease me without ending,

But worst of all, They’d recite with gall, A verse that had me bending.

Elliott’s first case of “puppy love”!

“Marietta n Elliott, Sittin’ in a tree,  K I S S I N G!”,

“First comes love, Then comes marriage,

Then comes babes in a baby carriage!”

T’weren’t no fun bein’ friendly, When little in First Grade,

When mean young men, Towards me their tortures laid! :o(
