The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 One by one its scales clanked down Lifeless, conquered, to earth — The dragon of work was defeated quite; Sir Knight, our class, proved his worth. This valiant Knight, careworn, yet brave, Will ever be famed for his skill ; He ' ll add to his score other victories bold — More disturbing monsters he ' ll kill. The waving banner of Knight ' 27 Now hangs in a hall of fame; Each flap a sign of lusty toil — It carries on his name! 37

The Abbot Circle 1927 Clagg JNstorp The dragon of trouble and many years Obstructed the road to success. He rattled his scales of worry and care And breathed the smoke of stress. A Knight, to kill this dragon fierce, Set out on a five years ' quest. Flying his colors of red and white, He girded himself for the test. Clasping his belt of forty odd links, He hung thereto his sword, Sydna its light, his guiding force In which his faith was stored. Placed he then his silver shield, Flora, on his wrist; Clanked his spurs with grim intent — Girt for speed, I wist. Over his shoulder his trumpet he slung, Kay Keany, to herald the deed; Hat, as his purse, to gain him supplies; So — mounted his dappled steed. Started he in ' 22 The journey ahead of him rough, By ' 27 the den was in sight — He hid not his courage in bluff. Dauntless he rode to confront the beast Which heaved in convulsive start. Foiled him the Knight with rapier swift, And lunged at its evil heart. 36
