Poem for September (Back to School)

I accompanied mom on her walk yesterday. At our stops (she sits every 5 minutes or so to catch her breath) I recited two of her poems and one other. Then she surprised me by reciting two fairly long poems and a portion of another. The first was "In School-days" by John Greenleaf Whittier. She remembers perfectly all 11 stanzas.
