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

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.

For use later, on another day.

We know where we’re going, because

we went through all of that on the first day.
