Poetry Re-Issue: Hello, Summer!

It's that end of the school year time yet again, give or take a week or two, so I figured it was worth dusting off a poetic tribute of mine....

Hello, Summer!
Greg Pincus

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.

It's Poetry Friday, and you can see the roundup of this week's posts over at Teaching Young Writers.

Guess I missed this last time. It's wonderful, will share it with my class, who will love it, too!

Liked it just as much the second time around.
