Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 841 (That First Day)

As a rule-

It is a bit scary, on the first day of school.


Everything is brand new-

With new friends, to acrue.


New teachers and a new place-

Time to get comfortable, in this

unfamiliar place.


New school supplies, that must be put away-

For use later, on another day.


To grit one’s teeth, to make the day through-

To finally go home, and say a big whew.


For the second day will be A-ok-

We know where we’re going, because

we went through all of that on the first day.


As a rule-

It is a bit scary, on the first day of school.
