They say that teachers wait all year for the summer,
Because the cold days of January are always a bummer.
And since I’m a teacher where the snow always falls,
I anxiously await that magical call.
But to get that call, the timing must be just right,
The snow needs to falling well into the night.
So when it is snowing, I sit by the phone,
Hoping and hoping that I’m not alone.
When the call finally comes and much to my dismay,
It’s not a day off, but a two hour delay!
