Haiku Your Way Back to School

Listen to Sophia's haikus ... read by JH
Summer grey drizzle
And when the sun shines warmly
Then the school year starts.

School morning hustle:
Breakfast, teeth, bag, shoes, snack, drink,
Hug, kiss. Go! Go! Go!

Hometime slouch, shattered.
Ollie wants a playdate? Yes!
Mum, take my things. Bye!
