Wake me up when it’s September


Where summer begins to flirt with fall
and we all buy new school supplies.
I always feel like a student in September
even though I’ve been out of school awhile.
September is a time for beginnings.
We’re all brimming with potential in September.
Fresh haircuts, new outfits, a blank page.
I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils
in honor of Kathleen Kelly, if only I knew your name and address.
September should always be a time of hopeful change.
I like those in between times of the year,
but September, you are my favorite.
