The Paperback Years


A friendship has been formed
Throughout these past three years
We have come together
To overcome our fears

The future is upon us
High school is coming fast
Mature is what we need to be
For the jobs we have been cast

Turn in our school books
Weathered and torn from use
We give them sad looks
From all the locker abuse

We’ll have to part our ways
And say our last goodbye
Will we meet another day?
Or watch as the years go by

Gather our belongings
Zip up our backpacks too
Look back on our school
And realize how much we grew

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
