So, onward from that time they grew, Seedling and bud toward the skies, Still reaching up into the light E ' en though held down by earthly ties. Its roots are long. They stretch away Across a broad expanse of ground, From Williamstown to Boston Bay And clear to Hudson ' s banks they ' rq found. But what shall be their ripened fruit. When, from the tender, fostering care Of Alma Mater ' s nursery row. They seek a wider field elsewhere ? " We cannot tell. In after years Some branch may slowly wither down. The axe of Time will thin her limbs And mar the beauty of her crown. Still, let us hope that kindly Fate Will all her vigorous shoots preserve, And in our onward pilgrimage Make beauty unto use subserve.

% CL5SS PDEM. Not to the oak, whose aged limbs The shock of wintry blasts withstand, Nor to the fragrant sandal tree. Whose odor fills the Eastern land, Nor to the lily, beauteous, fair. Free from all tinga of earthly stain, Nor to the blessed herbs, whose powers Are potent to relieve from pain, But to a very common tree. Although in blossom wondrous fair Since promising of future fruit, — Would I our class compare. The apple tree, a common thing. But, useful as it has been made To please and profit all mankind. It puts all others in the shade. The seedling ' s size at first was small. But strong of root and full of life; At one year old the bud was set. Yet parent stock ne ' er knew the knife. 95
