trespasserswill: (autumn)
(with apologies to Henry Reed)

To-day, we have assembling of supplies. Yesterday,
We had the finding of bento boxes. And to-morrow morning,
We shall be departing for the first day of school. But to-day,
To-day we have assembling of supplies. The new backpack
Is dark blue and green with small white flowers,
And to-day we have assembling of supplies.

These are the three-prong folders. And these
Are the sheet protectors, of which you need 10
For each folder, except the blue. There should be an orange folder,
Which in your case you have not got. The backpack
Perhaps should have been purple, you think,
Which in your case you have not got.

This is the binder, which can be opened
By pushing on the metal tab. And please do not let me
See you yanking on the rings. You will pinch your fingers
If you don't use the tab. The backpack
Is easier to open, and you will not have
To worry about your fingers.

And this is the new school agenda. The purpose of these
Is to write out your assignments. Here is the first page
for the first day of school: we call this
Starting the year. Next to the kitchen table
The new backpack stands tall, stuffed with supplies
It is starting the year.

You are starting the year. You will open the agenda
To the first day's page, and stack the pencils and crayons
And the three-prong folders in your desk, except the orange one,
Which in your case you have not got; and the white blossoms
Drift across the front of your backpack, bright and fresh
For to-day we have assembling of supplies.
