The semester is drawing to it’s final demise,
As faculty and students surmise with surprise.
We’re stressed and we’re tired from papers and meetings,
Surely it’s time for some holiday greetings?
We pray as days pass that the end must be near,
To go home and gather with those we hold dear.
But first there are concerts and recitals galore,
Exams and due projects, still so much in store.
Soon though the halls will be be quiet and still,
For Christmas is coming to restore our good will.
Two weeks and three days (not that anyone’s counting),
I can already feel the excitement is mounting!
So work hard, stay focused, the days will take flight,
Then the magic will happen, Christmas joy and delight!
