My Way to School

By Ken Otani from Japan

I go to the university
Takes me 50 minutes using train and foot
I take the yellow train,
silver and green train,
silver and red subway.
I transfer twice, but it's common there.
I like looking outside in the train
Though it's everyday scenery,
I can see many things.
That's what I like.
If I can sit down, I sleep.
I feel relaxed.
From the nearest station,
I walk 10 minutes.
I pass by Starbuck's Cafe.
It smells good.
Then I enter the big, red gate,
And that's it. But it is more important to be a good person.
