Summer is ending
hot days filled with outside fun,
our sleeping in late.
August ends our days off ~ done,
back to school we must now go.

As a kid or young college student, it's hard to see the summer ending, but there's also some good feeling about the new school year. Nice Tanka, Paula. A poet friend in Texas, Bill

Reads like a good contender for the contest to me. Way to go. I remember those days, but we always had a couple more weeks before school started back. Your visit to my page added a different dimension to my page. Sara
