Hurrah for Glad Vacation Days!

Vacation Days.

The bell is dumb, the lessons learned,
The key upon the schoolroom turned
And joyful shouts the children raise;
Hurrah for glad vacation days!

The star-eyed daisies in the grass
Are blooming now for all who pass
Along the pleasant country ways;
Hurrah for glad vacation days!

Where woodland paths are cool and green
And shaded by a leafy screen,
The golden sunshine peeps and plays;
Hurrah for glad vacation days!

The sparkling waves along the shore
Dance up and down the sandy floor,
The boat upon the billow sways;
Hurrah for glad vacation days!

We cannot count the lovely things,
The sounds and sights that summer brings;
Let’s sing a song in summer’s praise;
Hurrah for glad vacation days!
