Schools across Texas will be teeming with students and teachers soon. That was the inspiration for this week’s Typewriter Rodeo poem by Jodi Edgerton.
FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
All their clothes laid out
The first day back to school is here
And parents give a shout
Grateful to the teachers
Who’ll inspire every child
With stories, math, experiments
Researching animals wild
Drop them off at school finally
With a tiny tear and a hug
Then gather up with the other parents
Party on — let’s cut a rug!
