School Time in a Little Rhyme

The time is near,

We’ve been waiting so long,

Yet it’s here already,

But where’s the time gone?


The time is still,

I try to log on,

The website’s crashed,

The night will be long.


The time is here,

My heart starts to race,

The screen refreshes,

We got our first place!


The relief is here,

There’s disbelief too,

But I’m so, so happy,

Pass the tissue!


The gamble paid off,

Our little bear’s got in,

We got our first choice,

Please escuse the grin!


 …and that’s why my #WordoftheWeek with The Reading Residence is ‘school’.
