Maud Barclay Stevenson, ’21
We have seen four springtimes wax and wane,
The sunshine follow the clouds and rain.
Thy gray stone walls stand firm, strong, and true;
Would we have done so well not knowing you?
Dear old Abington, dear for the things we have done,
For our joys, sorrows, hard work and innocent fun.
Ours is the songbird’s note, sung for the joy of singing
Thy fame, Alma Mater, ideals and true worth to the echo ringing.
Our doings will pass like a breeze on a lake,
Causing few ripples, leaving the water like glass in its wake.
Little immaterial nothings we shall forget;
But friendships, sacrifices, love will live on till life's sunset.
What we have thought and felt and done will count some day; And as you are dear to us, we’ll answer thy call, however far away.
And now as we depart, to travel different ways,
We say, with wistful heart, farewell to high school days.
But the fiare of royal purple, and the glint of precious gold Will recall our senior colors whose motto “I will” uphold.
