Back to School Poem, Back to School Poetry

by Maggie on August 4, 2012

Oh my gosh… I read this back to school poem and laughed so I have to post it!  Usually anything that starts with “Twas the night before…. is going to be funny! ☺ I also found some really cute back to school poems you’ll just love ♥.

I’ve always loved poetry and happen to write poetry myself when I have time and creativity strikes! So I think poetry is a great way to express yourself & to get others thinking….. And what better thing to get you thinking about back to school than with back to school poetry!

The Night Before School

Twas the night before school started,
When all through the town,
The parents were cheering.
It was a riotous sound!
By eight, kids were washed
And tucked into bed…
When memories of homework…filled them with dread!

New pencils, new folders, new notebooks, too!
New teachers, new friends…their anxiety grew!
The parents just giggled when they learned of this fright
And shouted upstairs-…
GO TO BED-IT’S A SCHOOL NIGHT!

Daycare Provider Poem

Although you’re not their mother,

You care for them each day

You cuddle, sing, and read to them

And watch them as they play.

You see each new accomplishment

You help them grow and learn

You understand their language

And you listen with concern.

They come to you for comfort

And you kiss away their tears

They proudly show their work to you

You give the loudest cheers!

No, you are not their mother

But your role is just as strong

You nurture them and keep them safe

Though maybe not for long –

You know someday the time will come

When you will have to part

But you know each child you’ve cared for

Is forever in your heart!

WHY HANDS-ON?

I TRIED TO TEACH MY CHILD WITH BOOKS;

HE GAVE ME ONLY PUZZLED LOOKS.

I TRIED TO TEACH MY CHILD WITH WORDS;

THEY PASSED HIM BY OFTEN UNHEARD.

DESPAIRINGLY, I TURNED ASIDE;

“HOW SHALL I TEACH THIS CHILD,” I CRIED?

INTO MY HAND HE PUT THE KEY,

“COME,” HE SAID, “PLAY WITH ME.”
