On The Night Before School Starts
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     On the night before school starts it's quiet in the long halls.
 
2     There are "Welcome Back" posters nicely hung on the walls.
 
3     The schoolyard is empty. Not a child can be seen.
 
4     The doors have been painted, and the windows are clean.
 
5     Children went to bed early. Now they're snug in their beds
 
6     while dreams about spelling tests dance in their heads.
 
7     As the janitor sweeps the last dust off the floor,
 
8     he heaves a big sigh. He has done this before.
 
9     Children's names have been taped above their coat hooks.
 
10     The library is stocked with shelves of new books.
