Twelve First Days


On the first day of the first day,
I am awed with surprise.
By school I'm mesmerized!

On the second first day,
It still takes my breath away!

When the third one ends,
I'm ready to make new friends!

But the fourth is kind of boring.
By fifth I just want change.

Sixth's is middle school's first day,
And things aren't quite the same.

Seventh is the middle of middle school,
Okay, that's kind of cool!

Eighth is the last year...
Before horrifying high school!

Ninth is kind of scary,
Tenth is just a joke.
Eleventh you just want it to end.

And before you know it 12th-
School's out!
FOREVER! ! !

    This is an inventive, varied, clever, witty super-survey of the whole of an education. I enjoyed getting a student/poet's take on the whole thing.But I won't dwell on the details having experienced them for a 34-year career. B-U-T Is school really over FOREVER after 12th grade? Won't there be classes in the future when you're learning a trade, or pursuing a college degree, or seeking a better job? One thing I know about YOU - whether you are in school or not - you will keep learning and growing deeper. It's the path you've chosen for yourself! (Report) Reply
