"Recess In Five Minutes"

The children in Miss Baxter's classroom know it. The children in Mrs. Fancher's classroom know it. Even Lucy Black's dog, Godiva, knows it.  Recess will begin in five minutes. The two room schoolhouse in Chafee County will empty out like the Trojan Horse. Swings will swing, teeter totters will teeter and totter and there will be a few bumps and scrapes. After thirty minutes, peace will return to the playground and Godiva will take up her vigil again.
