The summer’s half gone as teachers lament,
The month of July was time very well spent.
Sitting around on a nice sandy beach,
Nirvana and bliss are well within reach.
But the days slowly pass and with ease they go by,
This shouldn’t end, they say with a sigh.
But time marches on, and September draws near,
The summer is ending, that much is clear.
So enjoy the long days and put out of your head,
The inevitable truth and that strange sense of dread.
Because that day it will come and soon we’ll return,
To lessons and meetings, and all that we yearn.
But even as nice as the summers may be,
It’s the kids we await because they hold the key!
