Hello, Summer! -- a last day of school poem/a summer vacation poem

'Tis the end of the school year in many parts, and I thought I'd celebrate this poetry Friday by tossing up a summer vacation/last day of school poem. And why not, I ask? Ya, I couldn't come up with a reason either.... Check out the Poetry Friday roundup over at adventures in daily living!

Hello, Summer! -- (A Last Day of School Poem)
by
Gregory K.


Goodbye, classroom!
Goodbye, Teach!
You can find me at the beach...
Or in the park or at the pool
Or any place that isn’t school.

Goodbye, quizzes!
Bye, reports!
Hello days packed full of sports
And days when I’m just lazybones
While eating melty ice cream cones.

Goodbye, homework --
Lunchroom, too.
There’s so, so much I wanna do.
I know the school year flew on past…
But please, please summer -- last and last.

I love that poem! As a former teacher, I must say it captures the excitement of the teacher as well as the student!

Ah, you sum it all up so well! Nice poetry, Greg. On another note, in an oh-so-friendly payback kind of way, I'm tagging you in a new kind of blog game. Similar to "8 Things Meme" but with humor added. Go to my blog to check it out!

I also love your poem! Well, my kids love summer a lot. Aside from the wonderful weather, summer's the time when they can relax and have a good time. But they also love going to school!
