run into the building.
Journals and pencils
fresh hair and new shoes.
Little kids crying because they'll miss their moms.
High schoolers smiling 'cause independence is the bomb!
Teachers are ready. Principals, too.
To get this year started. We all know what to do.
We'll do group work. We'll learn and discuss.
We'll read and write until the holidays come.
And at the end of the school year, we'll be taller and smarter.
And then summer time comes, and we'll do it all over again!!
Welcome back, New School Year.
You've been missed.
