(Xo apologies to I»yron—this is an improvement on Waterloo.) CANTO I. CANTO III.
There was a sound of revelry at night.
Our football team had won the game.
We wished t celebrate the vict'ry right
By some stunt that was not too tame.
Mt. Vernon's lamps shone bright and fair:
A score or two of whispers, nods, and then
Each boy was seen to quickly seek his lair,
Likewise to reappear at half-past-ten:
The sight they made defies this lowly pen!
Did yc not see them? It was a motley crowd.
Dressed like ghosts in their gown of night.
On with the inarch "Let’s go!" they all allowed,
"No sleep 'til morn and blazes takes the
Mt. Vernon Mall, by Pluto, we’ll invade
Like knights of old. We'll give our best regards
Alike to youthful blossom and old maid.
In we will go without presenting cards!”
On! On! they went—with Lecce ahead by twenty yards!
Within the parlor of that famous hall
Sate Vernon's stately princess: she did hear
Their lusty footsteps on the front porch fall.
“Boys!" cried milady, "stop right where you are!"
Seasoning the cry with a belligerent frown.
Right well the leader proved to be a star.
For battering all the opposition down.
Up! Up! the stairway rushed the knights of the gown.
Ah! then there was hurrying to and fro
And gathering of skirts, and whiffing of lights.
Excitement all. where but an hour ago
All was peace upon Mt Vernon's height.
Ah me! the tumult of that Dorm parade!
I sec the actors, hear the hubbub yet.
Nor have I heard of such another raid.
The white-gowned boys, the obstacles they met.
Make it a night we shall not soon forget! -PERCY DA CIO OONNITT.
