■ V My garden is a lovely spot. Where Hollyhocks stand in stately rows And watch the yellow Daisies groiv. The Pussy Willoivs sang and danced Until the Marigolds were quite entranced. Suddenly the Four o ' Clocks awoke with a start And called to the Dogwood not to bark. Sweet William came with Pansy Blue To see what there was that he could do. Jack-in-the-Pulpit stopped his noise And called to the Sunflowers over the way, That the flowers were all acting gueerly that day. The Lilies solemnly nodded their heads And whispered to the Tulips in their beds. It was just right at this time That Vesperflower pealed out a chime, And Aunt Petunia called and said, ' Home, children, it is time to go to bed. " Fra nces Frost , ' jj . •4 127

He comes! he comes! the elfin Jack Frost, he comes! He frisks around, just like a dash. Painting beautiful scenes on the window panes And putting tiny pearls on the grass. He has tinted the leaves of the great oak trees And given the world a golden hue. The jewels he scatters as he darts to and fro. Glisten like diamonds among the dew. He comes! he comes! the spry Jack Frost, he comes! From the frozen Greenland bay; From the icy plains of the northern lands Where the reindeer like to stay; Where the f isherman ' s sail is stiff with ice. And the unnamed forms below. In the sunless glow of the cold, cold night Into marble statues grow. He come! he comes! the gay Jack Frost, he comes! All the lakes and ponds shall feel The icy touch of his frosty breath, and give Joy to the skater ' s heel; While the brook which danced and sang For the flowers along its bank Has had to heed to its winter king And into mournful silence sank.

We were all expecting a day of fun and relaxation from our school day routine, for there was no wind and the air was just cool enough to make one want to walk. At 9:15 the roll was called and the group divided into two parts; the assistant and the patrol leader of the Beax’er Patrol were given command. Instruc- tions were: that the first group to toj) the mountain would wait for the other. Wdth that and a brief inspection of packs we were on our w ' ay. At i)recisely 9:40 we crossed the WYter Street bridge going toward the old X’alley road. The boys of my group all seemed to be in high spirits, one of whom was interesting to watch because it was his first hike of more than two miles. The usual chatter soon gave away to real enjoyment. One most observant boy searched out a well worn jiath leading off toward another peak and a curious little fellow sug- gested that we use a patrol hike as a means of revealing its secrets, so we resolved to take that hike soon. Our hrst stop was at 10:40 at which time we stojiped at a spring to refresh ourselves and adjust any uncomfortable packs. Just as we were resuming our way there was a sudden swish and a medium sized brown bird soared to a high majile tree to find the cause of so sudden an alarm. We could not understand why a bird so closely resembling a flicker would be so high on a mountain at that season of the year. As we were nearing the top a light snow flurry blew up. At the top the other group was waiting patiently our arrival. remained on top only long enough to ascertain whether to continue down to the road or take the path; however we decided in favor of the former without hesitation as the wind and snow were rapidly increasing in velocity. It was about 11:10 when we started down the mountain toward Draper and after thirty minutes of brisk walking we halted in the edge of the wood.
