To My Graduating Class
They file out down the shaded path
A decade cmd two years of lute reclaimed
And Tame caught fast, for one nostalgnc second an the
rustlmg of the trees the footsteps and the movmg
shadows on the pale walls
Two by two they come now
A gray capped lme their tassels swmgmg
Lups parted breathlessly and eyes expectant
And now one last glance backward up the green stretch
to the wlde steps and the open wlndows
Thrcats tlghtened and wrth faces strangely solemn
Years drlft back upon them
.lammed lockers and a lost book
Scuffed saddle shoes and rolled pants legs
Whste dlclfeys and a strung of pearls
Sunlught on a desk scratched deep wnth M R H M
The darkened audntoruum and the smell of the dust and
grease paunt In the hushed wlngs
Knees shaklng and your first speech
The broken slat In hnstory class thurd seat fourth row
A bug dance a gagged tear ID floatmg tulle
The football field and shlnung gym floor
Torn programs hoarse voices and barbecues and
records at the Rltz
Labs lecture rooms extended crams
Themes crumpled papers last exams
And you Mary smlle and you Jack walk wnth your
head held htgher
See lust out above you? Out where the trees are partmg
and the wnld gold sunlught cuts the clouds?
There where the road turns clear and sharp grows broad
then bends from sight?
Out there IS Lute' Out there youll be a man Jack
and you a woman Mary Out there IS hard work Bob
A rtvet gun the welder s torch the smllmg face behnnd the
grocery counter the soldner khakn clad careers and
homes ambltuons realized and dreams realuty
Out there are fanlures and successes Jane Out there IS peace
war bnrth and death and yes a sleepless mght
But happmess more than hearts can hold If you wall take
the hours the days the years and flll each
tumbled beat of tlme wnth all your heart your ltfe
and what the world oFFers
