Happy Graduation Day, Sparkie!

Here upon this graduation
as I write congratulations
upon my laptop like a homework chore;
I think back to those books and reading,
finding lessons in flour kneading
doing math till eyes were bleeding--
You can say to High School, “nevermore.”

We’ve reached the end, though weak and weary
(the world’s your oyster now, my dearie)
and your brother’s not quite Soph-o-more;
It’s time to put to use that learning,
go on to college if you’re yearning,
or perhaps a living, earning--
But you can say to High School, “nevermore.”
