The call to school it comes! It comes!
A muffler on the gypsy drums!
And birds and beasts and children sigh
While Summer murmurs soft, "Goodbye."
And gruff old Autumn paints his name
On leaves in shades of gold and flame.
Back to the classrooms and the books;
Back from vacation's cherished nooks;
Back with a sigh of deep regret;
Back to the cry of "'Teacher's pet!"
Back to the place where pencils fly,
And love notes, too, upon the sly.
The call to school, it comes! It comes!
Recalling youth to maps and sums,
Athletic meets and frantic cheers,
But sad it falls on adult ears...
For hearts of grown-ups long in vain
To be a kid at school again!

Bye Hayden, have a great first day of school and a wonderful school year! I love you!
