The Night Before School Poem



The Night Before School

Twas the night before school started,
When all through the town,
The parents were cheering.
It was a riotous sound!
By eight, kids were washed
And tucked into bed…
When memories of homework…filled them with dread!

New pencils, new folders, new notebooks, too!
New teachers, new friends…their anxiety grew!
The parents just giggled when they learned of this fright
And shouted upstairs-…
GO TO BED-IT’S A SCHOOL NIGHT!
