Finals

Here at the end of the term,
I’m standing in my office
Before my bookshelves,
And there in disarray
Are the soldiers of learning.
Fallen among fellow warriors
And foreign company,
Scarred and bent,
They await transport
Back to the comfort
Of sliding home
Between their dusty
Companions at last.

-Laurence Musgrove
