T'was the last day of break, and all though the yard
Flurries danced from the sky, they fluttered so hard.
The white mounted up, as high as it would,
And tickled tree noses, and all that they could.
All covered in white, the back yard begged for play
The children went out at the end of the day
Eyes opened with wonder and dressed to the tea
They played until dinner then ate all they could see.
This night before school starts, and all through this house
Not a kiddo was stirring, not even a Spouse!
The bookbags were stacked by the front door with care
In hopes that the school bus soon would be here.
The clock sounds the alarm, we all must get up.
Get dressed, get packed, get out the door, hurry-up!
And I with my coffee and they with their packs,
Run to the bus for the first school day back.
"May he grant your heart's desires and make all your plans succeed." Psalm 20:3-5
