Shopping, laundry, signing papers;
Holes in socks and dinner time capers.
Mixed emotions, schedules come;
Summer is ending, a new school year has begun
Plans lost to the heat
Older kids saddled with books
Younger kids get a treat
Mom hopes to work on her looks.
Then remembers the school time beat
Come and go, to and fro, flying like a flock of rooks.
Early mornings, rushing out the door,
Quite days ’till kids run in full of joy.
Evenings pressed for time, homework on the floor,
Take a bath, close you eyes little boy.
Dear daughter, please finish your chore.
Quiet, time to rest, don’t trip on that toy.
