Poem #4 -- The Last Day of Spring Break



Reality hits.
Back to work: grading, planning.
The end is in sight.



This haiku goes out to all the teachers who today will drag out the bag of school work they brought home and do at least a little bit of it. It even goes out to those amazing souls who didn't start their vacation until they had everything in place for the first week back. They, too, will have to set their alarm tonight for the first time in a week.

  1. So sad and so true. Thanks for this Haiku. I actually did a combination of both, took out my plans on Tuesday and was pretty set for the week, until today... took another look and cleaned out my bag. I think I am ready, but will I sleep?
