The Abbot Circle 19 2 1 ®f)o£e little Comprefjensribeg Little D ' s have come to our report to stay, To batter down our average, and keep the A ' s away, And shoo the B ' s from off their perch, and even make a sweep Of C ' s and the C + ' s which we have tried to reap. And all hard-working Seniors, when lessons must are learned, Gather ' round the Senior Parlour, and then are most concerned A ' listenin ' to the tragedies each other tells about — How the Comprehensives git you — Ef You Don ' t Watch Out! Once they was a little boy would simply alius fail, An ' when he went to tutoring school, away down at Yale - He simply fooled and played around all through the Fall, An ' when exam reports came in, he wasn ' t there at all! They looked for his Latin exam, and algebra and physics, They tried to find his chemistry, and looked him up in civics, But all on every paper was jist his name writ ' out ■ — An ' the Comprehensives ' ll git you — Ef You Don ' t Watch Out! And they say in the Senior Parlour, when it ' s Monday and blue, And they ' ve looked up the English lesson, and everyone ' s said " oooh " An ' the Latin ' s long and the Algebra ' s hard An ' they ' re worrying about the marks on their card, " You better mind your Latin, and your algebra so dear, And crack your English lesson, and study pretty near All your French and idioms you ' re s ' posed to know about — Er the Comprehensives ' ll git you — Ef You Don ' t Watch Out!

The Abbot Circle 192 1 iLtterarp When I die I want to be feeling deliciously tired — to have a feeling of achievement — to have fought a good fight, and won the right to rest. And then I shall be sinking slowly into a sweet sleep, and suddenly feel a pain, a pain which shall cleanse my soul of my body, and send me all tingling and rejoicing off into space. I shall feel as fresh and young and dancing and powerful and bright as Baldar. And there will be a strong rush of air upon me, and suddenly I shall find myself walking in the moonlight beside the sounding sea. The silvery haziness, the stretch of shining beach, and the pounding surf will invigorate me and I shall march onward with assurance like a hero of old. And within the sound of blowing wind and clamoring sea there will be a stillness, and that still small voice that has come down to me through the ages will speak, and space, and time, Eternity itself will be explained. Frances Keany ' 21 fttotligfjt Twilight and the deepening shadows steal Through the great still forest deep in shade, And as the sunshine slowly starts to fade, From afar is heard the clear-toned vesper ' s peal ; And in the light of stained glass windows kneel, With reverent heads bowed low, both man and maid With humble hearts and spirits open laid To Him whose quiet presence now they feel. Mary Harrison ' 21 50
