Swift is the jfligbt
Swift is the flight of youth--a sudden sweep
Of wind, a wave against an endless shore
Reeedes into itself, is seen no more,
An impulse in a vast and ehangeless deep.
Into this surging sea of life, youth came,
Radiant, with ea-ndia' eyes aglow,
Unsearred in 'mind and soul he did not know
Of guilt, of sorrow, no, nor even sha1ne.
Now, may the Hand tlzat eherishes or mars,
That gives the hopes, the traits that shape to grow
Youth's probity of soul, to each bestow
Strength to surmount ambition's sternest bars,
For, youth, aspiring, ever strives. Although
Blinded by sophistry, he gropes for stars.

He was mildly surprised to see a few energetic fish swimming by with
ZW 'QE clean handkerchiefs in their pockets and slick brown books under their
fins, but he was too sleepy to do anything about it. just as he was dozing off again
his mother shook him by the gill and handed him a clam shell. "Hurry l" she said,
"You'll be late for school." Giving his fins a preliminary flip, he slid cautiously
i11to the stream. Fish were swimming about excitedly. He caught glimpses of his
acquaintances-lazy suckers, snoopy little catfish, ubiquitous tadpoles, and an inky
squid or two. Sam didn't want to start to schoolg he did it because he was told that
it was proper.
As time went on, Sam was swept into deeper water. Gradually he and his
companions became accustomed to the increasing swiftness of the current. Those
whose work conformed to instructions and who talked at the proper time and were
quiet at the proper time were praisedg and those who did no work at all and
exchanged clam shells, chewed fishing worms, and blew bubbles were caught on
snags or stranded on sandbars. Sam, who was neither good nor bad, drifted
He did notice that the river was becoming broader. He was just a normal fish.
He believed everything everybody told him, wept when he was reprimanded, beamed
when someone patted his fin casually, did from force of habit everything he was
told, and took the blame for the other fishes' errors. Sam had no aspirations-no
regrets. Sam was a Sucker.
One day Sam, in a reckless mood, swam above the level usually occupied by
suckers. Climbing up as far as the surface of the water, he poked his head through.
The broadness of the opaque river, the green of the trees on the shore, and the
ineffable blue of the sky dazzled him. Above the river wheeled a silver gull-a sure
sign of the proximity of the ocean, if Sam had only known. Sam was overcome
with emotion. How he longed to be in the gull's place-to see the river as a whole.
He wanted to be above the petty affairs of his little world: to look down instead of
being looked down upon. Sam, for the First time, had Aspirations-and it didn't
feel good. It never occurred to him that the gull might be envying him. VVho is a
sucker, that he should dream? Sam was afraid. and he dived home.
For a while his mind retained a vivid image of the gull against the sky. He
felt superior to the ordinary fish and seldom condescended to speak to them. As
the days wore on, however, the image faded, and Sam drifted back into his old,
slack methods of living.
As the fish neared what Sam guessed to be the mouth of the river, they were
not allowed to talk in the corridors, they must observe traffic rules fkeep to the
