School's here

Three, two, one
Summer is done
Shortened days
Lunchroom trays
School in session
Answer the question
Join the throng
As days speed along
Before we know it
We'll be frost bit
With chilly breezes
And someone preaches
"Remember the blast
Of heat that harassed
Us all through June"
Coming soon
We will enjoy
With every girl and boy
Christmas vacation
Days and weeks hasten
To bring us spring
And begin the counting
Of the days
With shouts of hoorays
School will be done
Three, two, one

  5. Three, two, one
    Summer is done

    That just about sums it up for me too! All summers fly, but this one in particular was so packed that it went by at warp speed. I enjoyed it, but I am ready for a slower fall. Love your poetry!

  6.  You don't like school?  ME EITHER.  I have always disliked school.  Even when my son was in school.

  7. That's so beautifully ironic! I love how it starts and ends with the good stuff - long days, vacation, summer :) Usually I think of it as being the other way around.

  8. Ah school... so much to like, so much to dislike. :) Just kidding! What a blessing to have education, but I will definitely shout hooray with you when I'm finished. <3
