A PAGE FROM A MT. VERNON GIRL’S LIFE
BY LENA FREIDAY Given in Everett. Friday. December 11
A student sat with countenance grim And studied with all her might,
For lessons were piled up miles in height, And at ten out goes the light.
In feverish haste she studies on Trying in vain to think,
And to add to the general confusion of things
The lights gave their warning blink.
A frenzy now seized the throbbing brain At thought of lessons not done,
And she plainly saw on the morrow's morn She must rise ere the radiant sun.
On her pillow the weary student tossed.
Dreaming of days on the farm,
When seeming only a short half-hour.
She hears that unwelcome alarm.
Dismayed again by lingering lights She dresses in general clamor But says, "When done I'll have some time To ‘cram’ for that ‘test' in Grammar.”
The terrestial world began to fade While pondering over the noun.
And she wished the buildings got their light From the power plant of the town.
The ardent ring of the breakfast bell Brought forth the imnetuous “Oh. Stung!” Then time for that daily plan to write She searched for from the time it rung.
But suddenly she thinks of chapel And says. "Where there's will there's a way,”
So there to the tune "Lead Kindly Light" She writes out the plan for the day.
From class to class she hastily goes.
But peeks at her theory of light.
And learns of Miss Goshen that toes aren't used
In the complicated process of sight.
Evening was on and she happily thought Of two days from the work she hated. When a gentle tap told her in the parlors below
A young man sat and waited.
Her fur and gloves, a hat and muff She was hastily accumulating When in came a hunch of jolly girls To tell all about the skating.
Over their glorious trip out and their long walk back,
They seemed to be much elated.
And she quite forgot the parlors below. Where a young man wearily waited.
After preliminary moves She hurriedly descended the stair.
But minutes had seemed like hours to him And she found him in great despair.
Everett's musical program was on for the night.
She gave Wallenhoupt's “Whispering Wind,”
But the issuing sound from those rattling keys
Recalled a tornado to mind.
These lines I have endeavored to write To show to the world in what haste A Mt. Vernon girl goes thru the school. Without any time to waste.
