I wait

I wait and I wait

for my class to come

on a foul and fair day

in October.


I have the right

materials well made

for students

to consume and know.


It is all there

waiting on display,

but are they

ready to see them?


Will they come

with minds in tune

and open to what I say

on this fine day?


So I wait and wait

for my students

to come on

this fair and foul day

in November.
