One Happy Summer

by Esther Thornburg
(Cantril, Iowa USA)

Last day of school the teacher said,
"You have had all you need to know".
The elated first grader shared the news
With mother, that learning was taken care of.
Mother smiled, but what a happy summer followed.

But the days of fall were sure to come.
Off he went to school thinking the learning was done.
The first few days went quite well,
But soon a story to mother, he must tell.
There were just a lot of things to learn quite well.

Many years have come and gone.
All those things of life just move along.
Now he is a grandfather daily learning on.
The world moved on to a computer age,
Learning still writes another page.
