Students' shoulders sag sorrowfully
At the Season’s sluggishness,
The Semester, stagnant and slow.

We trod on our trajectory
In a trance, totally and utterly tired,
Thankful for the treasured time with family.

We patiently prepare, plodding
Prayerfully toward a pause
And peace from projects.

Lights line the halls as we leave,
Luggage packed, ready for the journey’s end
Where loving arms will welcome us happily.
