School Bus Zone

Thirty small children
in blue wool coats
rank and file
march into school
first day
of September
post Labor Day
heads full
of Summer’s last
memories
while leaves
remain green
before the change
as if orange
should be a color
that announces
school’s resumption
as if orange
announces
the construction zone
for building young minds.
