Children Are Aware

Don’t look now, the school year is approaching fast and children know it.  In fact, for some it has already begun.  What your children may not know is that across the country moms and dads are celebrating.  I wrote a poem in honor of the occasion.

                                                       Summer Vacation

                                                                 School’s
                                                                    Out
                                                                    For
                                                                Summer
                                                       Children run home
                                                       Free to pester Mom
                                                     Slumber parties ensue
                                                   Where no child slumbers
                                                    Refrains of – I’m bored!
                                                    Climb to a crescendo as
                                                    The days begin to crawl
                                                    When does school start?
                                                   Relief’s around the corner
                                                 Where did I put the aspirin?

gather post

It’s a concrete (shape) poem.  I was trying for an aspirin bottle shape.  Since school bells started ringing again for my girls on August 9th, the bell worked well for me.  Enjoy the sound of silence.  I am.  😀
