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!
