Zo Sans Souct BY ONE OF LEBANON ' S OLDEST CITIZENS AXS SOUCI, merry maidens May the theme my pen inspire. It might arouse a deader muse To words of rythmic fire. I know no poet who could sing Your praises with more feeling. Or one who ' s had a better cbance To know with whom he ' s dealing;. We ' ve walked along the paths of life — We ' ve all been girls together; We ' ve made mud cakes on old Gay street In everv kind of weather. How often have I held your dolls, While you my kite did fly, And played " hop-scotch " on Greenwood street, And shared each other ' s pie. We ' ve taken bites out turn by turn, And rode our old stick horses, And had a " pin show " in the yard At which vou all were bosses. You used to dress up in my clothes, and walk with stately tread. While I wore dresses, when I could, But oftener went to bed. We ' ve slided down the cellar door, As if it were a duty, And in our tableau, I, so sweet, posed as the sleeping beauty.

Bear Sans Souci : If we but knew Some words that could express your due Of thanks for all your favors sweet, — That bring us students to your feet, — Those thanks we ' d speak, and praises, too. But under sun there ' s nothing new, Save this new Phoenix which you view; May it be thought a tribute meet, Dear Sans Souci. " Whene ' er its pages you review, May pleasant memories renew The days that Time will ne ' er repeat, The hours whose flight is all too fleet, The hours and days when we ' re with you Dear Sans Souci. -— . %?.fter bert ■ G 55° m fc

We used to play those ' ' Wild West games, ' ' I was chief of the " pow-wow; " I used to wield the tomahawk. You wear the " war paint " now. We also played old " possum pie, " Where kisses paid the pawn, Fond kisses that you long for now From darkness until dawn. But of all the fun we ever had, ' Twas on that " hen " picnic, While I made the lemonade You waded in the creek. % £-%: A , r A " if ' -j h Those days so gay passed long ago, Can never be recalled; You girls are just as young as then, While I am growing bald. My hair (what ' s left) is growing grav, ' Twas nature changed it, too; But nature ' s had no chance at yours — The dve vou used was true. You have lost your personal identity, As Mary, Jane or Lucy, And are spoken of these days, en masse — As the ladies of Sans Souci.
