Back-To-School Shopping - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

The calendar is changing its expression
Summer days are getting shorter and cooling
The months are flipping over in succession...
Time to prepare for September schooling

Boys and girls are eager to purchase
new duds for a brand-new school year
Can't forget a new lunchbox and thermos
New shoes will surely shift motion into gear

Starting at mid-day…eager and carefree
beginning to look for a proper fit
Can't figure out why same sizes vary
Try everything on before deciding on it

From each fashion display we forge forward
Feet are dragging…patience is running thin
Children are misbehaving…a bribe is offered
Improve and get a treat that'll make you grin

A shade of clarity changes their complexion
If this is true, the effort to calm down
would be rewarding… time for a correction
Maybe it'll be an ice-cream with a double crown

Standing at the counter with selections piled...
Not sure if the height of accumulation will
stay within the budget… or exceed by a mile
With the swipe of a credit card… I am billed

The day has turned dark… mission is complete
Reassured that the first day of the school year
will begin on a positive note… as friends greet
I look to the day they graduate and have careers
