In a few weeks / the school year will end
The summer weeks / will begin

After that / we’ll all start / again
Next school year

Me with new students
You in a new grade / with new teachers

You won’t stop being my student
You just won’t be in my class / everyday / anymore

/ / /

This poem was written to the day thirty prompt at Poetic Asides to write a stop or don’t stop poem.

    • One of the things I am loving about teaching sixth graders – which is new to me – is that I do get to see them next year. I used to teach fifth graders, and was used to sending them off to middle school. Now, I see former students all the time.
