Monday Poetry Stretch - School's Out, Summer's In

The last few days of school (K-12) are winding down here. After a half-day on Friday, summer vacation will become a reality. I've been spending a lot of time during the last two weeks planning for and dreaming about summer with my 7-year old. Boy, what dreams he has! All this talking has me thinking back to some of my own summers as a kid.

I thought it might be fun this week to write about the end of school and/or summer vacation. Select any form you like for this one and join us in a bit of a stretch. Leave me a comment about your poem and I'll post the results here later this week.

  2. Tricia,

    I have a poem that I wrote for a first grade teacher when she retired several years ago. (I also posted the poem last May at Blue Rose Girls.)
