Twas the night before Break and all through the house
Were sounds of the children finding their clothes
And packing and stacking of those
In suitcases and totes and anything close.
As families work to prepare
For a week without school,
A week without care.
A week of vacation both here and there.
Twas the night before Break and all through the town
And all the places near and around
Parents were making a list, checking it twice
Because forgetting something just would not be nice.
"Pack your jeans, t-shirts, bathing suits, pajamas,
Sandals,sneakers, and sweatshirts," called the mamas.
"Ipods, Ipads, and Kindle Fires, too
Earplugs, cellphones, anything you need to do."
Twas the night before Break and all we could hear
Were the sounds of students giving a cheer:
"Spring Break is near. Spring Break is here!"
