The Last Day of Summer
The streetlights flickered on at dusk
And on to home I slowly trudged.
I’d played all day out in the sun
And in the brook I’d dived and plunged.
I ran around, no cares at all,
Enjoying now last summer day
Before the next when school’d begin
And careless fun would go away.
Alas, a venture new’d begin.
I’d find my friends in classrooms now
Instead of in the streets with bikes,
But seeds of learning we would sow
With teacher’s help and guiding hand.
My time’d be spent with binders, books,
In study groups with all my friends,
And spending weekends at the brook.
