Joseph Reich - Days Before Kindergarten

Today we have a poem from Mr. Joseph Reich called "Days Before Kindergarten". Even though it's not explicitly about summer, I feel as though it is necessary for the month of June.

days before kindergarden
doors magically and mysteriously open to the school
and half-crazed kids come stampeding out
leaping onto their little red tricycles
the teacher enthusiastically
hollers--"one time around!"
then returns them
back to the shadows
is anything in this life?
anything? comparable?
