Do you remember August,
When summer was still alive;
Yet boredom and anticipation
Were beginning to move in?

New shoes, clothes and school supplies;
Friends meeting on the playground
Getting lockers and class schedules;
Checking out the newcomers.

“Not so fast,” you were thinking,
Warm days and evenings still reign;
The county fair is just starting;
Can’t school wait a bit longer?

but summer fades into fall,
With its chill and warmth combined
To bring coziness and alas
All that has to do with school!

  1. The new school year always brought great anticipation! Maybe 85% confident “Yes, bring it on!” and 15% “Hope my brain and my ego are up to the challenges.” How about for you?
