Looking Back Poem April 27, 2015

High School Seniors

In May, students look

To graduation, parties,

Work or college goals,

They no longer stress

About grades or homework, eyes

Stare outside windows,

Thoughts outside their heads–––

Balloons bouncing into trees,

Strings waving goodbye,

But teachers stretch out

Long arms to pull them back in,

Tethered until June.
