#817 – Last Day of Second Grade

Last Day of Second Grade
I’m pretty sure that clock just ran backward.

Last Day of Second Grade

From August ’till the end of May
We’ve sat for hours every day
and now the end’s not far away:
Last Day of Second Grade!

We’ve studied, read, and learned and learned
until our brains felt boiled and burned.
Mere minutes now ’till we’ve adjourned.
Last Day of Second Grade!

We’ll miss our friends; we’ve made a few.
Perhaps we’ll miss our teacher too,
but still, we’re ready to be through.
Last Day of Second Grade!

One hundred eighty days have passed.
Now summer break approaches fast.
Then THREE! TWO! ONE! We’re done at last!
Last Day of Second Grade!

Thursdays are dog days!

I’m so proud of Andrew and all that he has accomplished in second grade this year. Third grade won’t know what hit them!

Also… holy moley! I can’t believe that I’ve finished three years of lunchbox doodles! Who’d have thought that I’d still be doing this today? Certainly not me. And 180 poems too? Boy, is my pen ever exhausted!

Author: Samuel Kent

I'm a dad who wants to share his labor of love with the world. I also happen to be an award-winning artist and poet. Follow the lunchbox doodles and poems on twitter: @LunchboxDoodler!
