The first line of this riddle has been stuck in my head for some time, so I figured I'd write it down. The rest I came up with recently.

Sleeping soldiers symbolize my start,

while worker's feats shall bring about my end.

If you have a job, I might mean little,

but if you are in school, I am your friend.

What am I?

It sounds like

Summer or Summer Vacation

Sleeping soldiers symbolize my start,

Memorial Day in the U.S. begins the summer (unofficially)

while worker's feats shall bring about my end.

Labor Day in the U.S. ends the summer (unofficially)

If you have a job, I might mean little,

Trudge off to work in the summer, same as all other seasons

but if you are in school, I am your friend.

Off of school for the summer!

And the title

summer is a season

  • $\begingroup$ Your first answer was correct; the season, not the vacation. I wish i could've made the second line an alliteration, but I got lazy looking for synonyms and couldn't think of any. $\endgroup$ – ThePuzzlingPlatypus May 25 at 12:48
  • $\begingroup$ Also, I knew it would be easy, but it would bother me if I didn't write it down eventually. $\endgroup$ – ThePuzzlingPlatypus May 25 at 12:49
