A summer of promise
Delight ahead
Hurricane fear ever near
We had so much to do

Loved ones exited
New places to live
We’re still here
New Orleans has become dear

The time sped
Joy enjoyed, film, food, fun
The end of summer nears
A new school year dawns

We have much to do
Little time to do it
Even though we’ve been here before
This school year is brand new
