Somebody’s been up early,
coloring with the orange, waking
the eastern corner of our sky.
They’ve added some yellow,
which brings to light
the promise of this new day.
Trading their black for blue,
they shaded a starkness into joy,
filling in spaces with possibility.
Up above, here and there,
they’ve drawn patches of white,
so dreams can float and ponder.
Then, off in the west
goes a silver star, a reminder
of where we’ve come from
and where it is we’re heading.

It’s so important that throughout the summer months, students keep their minds sharp to avoid what’s commonly called “learning loss.” Helping to ensure students stay on track is the New York State Senate Summer Reading Program.
