Twas the night before

The first Day of School, when all through the house

Not a creature was stirring, not even the Dog;

The backpacks were hung by the computer with care,

In hopes that school would soon not be here;

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,

While visions of Homework danced in their heads;

And mamma with her Diet Coke and Chocolate in hand,

Had just settled down for a long call to my dad,
When I sat on the bed, to read my sister a goodnight story there arose, a noise.

I sprang from the bed to see all off are clothes all set out.

Away to the window I flew like a flash,

Tore open the shutters and could not believe it was already time to go back.

The moon shined bright while we read are scriptures and said our prayers.

And I knew summer was no longer here.

So good Bye Summer for another year.
