Twas the Night Before...

The night before school starts
and all through the house,
An eerie quietness
spooks me and my spouse.

The ducks had been fed
at the pond with great care.
And Ginka's swingset
Helped girls swing through the air.

As we walked home with Dad
at the end of the night,
We talked about bedtime;
when we'd turn out the light.

We got home to our showers
our nails clipped up short.
Then we listened to Dad
as he read about forts.

We prayed and we sang
And we went off to bed.
With visions of recess
Around in our head.

And as we exclaimed
as we turned out the light.
Happy School Year To All
and to all a good night!


  1. Happy first day of school! What a moment.

  2. You're a poet!!! Very clever!

  3. That's awesome! For a mom who claims to be more than ready for the school year to start on Thursday, this made me a little teary to know that summer is coming to an end!
