Budding flowers within our world Decorating the plain of space Growing to show off future love With every flowering face Perfuming the stench of sorrows gone by Coloring the sadness of tears, we cry Build us a rainbow, shining so bright A wonder rainbow, glowing with light Build us togetherness with wisdom and might. Shining stars within our world Lighting the skies we see Putting our every hope to life To every dream that there might be Whatever a sight that we may seek Is shining so dim on light so weak By tiny threads of star lit beams A world with its flowers and streams It's our world so full of dreams. by Dijait Blocker, Class of 1980 Mrs. Mary Venskus Mrs. Mary A.
