1935 THE SIREN 193
Senior Class Poem-Life's School
Apologies to Poe
Once upon an evening dreary
l was wrestling, weak and weary,
With the class poem, sueh a problem
l had never met before.
A poem that all toil resisted,
Though l gropingly insisted
And all mental powers enlisted,
As l never had of yore.
But the poem, lay all dissembled,
Lay there ealmly as before-
Only this, and nothing morel
Quite distinctly l remember,
lt was on a bright September
And we were sueh humble members of the
freshman elass of yore,
lfagerly we wished the morrow
When we hoped that we might borrow
Wisdom wise from those classmates
Who had helped us out before,
Who had loaned us their assistanee
When in swampy paths before,
"Yes," l whispered, gflusl onee more!"
As l sat eaeh member eounling,
All my elassmales' names repeating
Tom Ualfney the president meeting.
lflla lVlae, the viee president more
The valedietory she is snatehing,
Robert Jones will not be napping
Wlhen 1-lass dues at his door eome rapping.
Happing gently at his door.
Oh, there's Gert, class secretary,
There are no strangers at my door.
They are welcome, evermore.
More they come, on invitation,
Sam and Harry with no hesitation
They will give Ag demonstrations
Which they always have in store.
As for lidwinis kind assistance
Helped me often in the distance,
Though l half feared more resistance
To my poem than heretofore.
But Edna Smith and Marthais smile
Cheered my troubled brow once more,
For no wearied eye they bore!
But at last my soul grew stronger,
Hesitating then no longer,
Alice. Anna. Alma and Lewis
With good graees they bestow us.
