Graduation Day

Everyone comes out on the lawn,
Dressed in their best
Presentation clothes.

Green grass, blue sky, smiles all around;
No one finds a reason
To be disagreeable.

The air itself is full
Of bright beginnings—
Each one is the outcome of an ending.

One life is finished
Only to start another;
Fortune smiles on all of us today.
