Winter Wins By Kenneth Tipton When leaves have dressed in brown and green and gold And summer's fragrant breath has breathed its last Then winter's breath is a chilly, killing blast. The last of summer's flowers stand brave and bold Soon they will bow to winds so strong and cold As others did in many seasons pastg When birds to southern homes are flying fast Then aged Winter reigns like kings of old. Like human lives the seasons make their change, From bright and blissful days to bleak and bare, When youth defies old age to take its place. If We just had our lives to rearrange, Like flowers in the winter's wind we'd dare Old age to take our place in life's long race. Fulility of Fame By Evelyn Reade I hope before I die to have achieved An act by which my memory will survive, Remaining in the minds of those alive As compensation, when of life relieved, And reason for my being. 'Tis believed That all, when dying, ultimately strive Before those angels garbed in black arrive To stir a memory in those bereaved. But what is there in leaving lasting fame Since fame is futile in the face of death? And usually the world forgets your name Almost as soon as He has stilled your breathg And, too, what glory lies in living on When those who knew and loved you, too, are gone?

Sonnets Cry of a Simple Heart By Bess Windham They'd paint with words sweet songs for their delight, And though they are great, they sound to me in vain: For I would say this night is as each night- The moon has comeg tomorrow there'11 be rain. They'd say the moon rose jeweled in the sky, And is shining caught in golden haloed rings: I'd say the moon is like a fire up high- The heavens are deep: the fragrant darkness clings. Inspired their words would paint the starlit way- The moonlight gleaming like a silken sheeng My bursting heart would only leaping say, "I do not know. Oh speak! What does it mean?" Oh, I'll not listen when their thoughts take wings- For I can only simply praise these things. Strange Thought By Catherine Wyatt We grew up together, she and Ig We walked and played together while we grew. She-did all the planningg I stood by, And oft I marveled at the things she knew. She mapped and planned her future day by day, And all the things she did, she did so well. Always in her work and in her play In all she undertook, she would excelg Always strove to reach some higher goal, Strained toward another rung in the ladder of fame. While I, I captured nothing to extol, Aspired to nothing, coveted no name. 'Twas thus we grew together side by side, How very strange it seems: I livedg she died. Pagetwelve THE MISSILE

Hot Buns By Catherine Wyatt C OME, on a brisk October afternoon after six hours of school, and ii l then hot buns. I know of nothing that I like better than to sit down to their enjoyment. The smell of them travels a long way. It meets me at the ,, corner. Then I know for certain and sure that the pan has just been removed from the oven. How the thought hastens my foot- steps! I-Iow it shortens the stretch to the kitchen door! Just let me into the kitchen. That is as far as I care to go, for cinnamon buns should be eaten in the warm spring atmosphere which their cooking has created. Give me a seat on the kitchen stool with my toes hooked behind the side rungs. Lay the spatula handy to chip in some extra bits of goo and a-ah! I take one. Goody-good! "Just two," I say to the uneasy thought of my tendency toward weight. After that I stop counting. The only way you will ever find out exactly how many I ate is to take a sworn statement from each member of the family as to how many he or she ateg add in the remainder, if there is any, subtract the sum from the total. Sometimes when I visit my grandfather his roving eyes center on me. I know exactly what's coming. "Your Aunt Belinda Betty Jane weighed three hundred pounds. Catherine is going to take after her." And then the ghost of the last batch of cinnamon buns rises up to haunt me. Shades of my ancestors! I should worry about my Aunt Belinda. Perhaps her glands went wild. Perhaps she never saw a cinnamon bun. So bring on the next batch. Hot, spicy cinnamon buns, all gooey with brown sugar! Have I made your mouth water? No? Then my powers of description are a failure. Oh! You said yes? Oh! Then come around next baking day. e ,gf Mb f E ig! fe -424 . w 1 - QV, all ifffllsl ' W P t if. a -- us' . . Page f011rfG011 THE MISSILE
