Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 760 (Taking A Break From The Golden Rule)


It was the last day, of school-

A vacation, away, from that golden rule.

.

The children heard that school bell ring-

And, suddenly they were off to their vacation thing.

.

The little red schoolhouse was suddenly-

My goodness, it was downright empty.

.

For the children were off, to the land, of fun-

Aside, from the home chores that had to be done.

.

It was 1900, and the new century had just begun-

The favorite activity, at this time, was to just set out

and run.

.

To run fast and as far as one could-

To be out of sight, there in the wood.

.

To come across that favorite spring-

To swim and take care of the fishing thing.

.

To fulfill that ultimate wish-

To bring home at least 3 huge fish.

.

The summers were long, and the children

savored it at best-

To climb trees, to hunt for berries, to

get plenty, of rest.

.

The time would come again, to pay attention

to that golden rule-

But, for right now, the children were going

to enjoy every moment, of the summer,

out of school.

.

It was the last day of school-

A vacation away, from that golden rule.
