10 THII QUILL
Bits C' Verse
Br NVILDA FARMER
The coming of dawn is a wonderful thing,
The morn 's on the doorstep and night's
on the wing,
The day lies ahead to do with as we will,
As does a blank page that is for us to fill,
And when day is going and light starts
Then will we be pleased with the record
we 've made?
The sky is so blue and the sun shines so
Each day is so lovely, and lovely is night,
So I shall be happy and glad while I
Far ahead mav be manv a sad gloom
v Q 7 P'
I would I were blessed with the wings
of a bird, '
Then o'er this whole world I would fly,
I would leave all the sorrows of earth
And would never come down from the
ISY YVONNE SCIIEFFER
All beauty is serene.
I wonder who has seen
The purple shadowed trees
Sway slightly in the breeze,
Or heard the wood-thrush sing?
And through the wood-land ring
The silver tinkling stream?
Like a tiny eliin's dream.
And have you seen the blue
And silver moon? The dew
llpon the grasses green?
Indeed a placid scene.
Or marveled at the pine,
The pretty columbine?
Just which of us will be
Lovely as these joys we see?
B Y ROBERTA BARIDQN
Look at the wondrous sunset!
lt is a beautiful sight!
It fills the mind with fancies-
lt fills the heart with delight.
I see in that sky of red,
A city embedded there.
It 's streets and homes are gold, like
New Jerusalem. So fair!
Gazing again at the sky,
I'm surprised to find now there,
Instead of the glorious light
A sort of lonely glare.
The homes and the streets are gone.
No more the city I see.
The lights of an hour before,
Have faded into the sea.
By MARJORY IIFGGINS
Down at the edge of a wandering lane
That runs by the cares of day,
A misty air-castle stands there in thf
VVhere fairies and hobgoblins dwell,
And that is the home of a crooked old
Who's making up dream-things to sell
The lovliest dreams to sell!
He makes pretty dreams of little boy
He weaves with a thread of love,
The airiest fancies of lover's blind eye
And fashions it all from above-
IIe wraps in a smile-every once in
And calls it an unborn kiss, my dear-
The dream of an unborn kiss.

THE QUILL 9
But Chl The Perficiy of Man
WOMAN always gets the last
word. So say the men. But
after such exorbitant accusa-
tions, we must rise in defense of the so-
called weaker sex.
YVeaker? Oh, the perfidy of man!
From the beginning of time woman has
shown strength. While the man sinks,
the woman swims, the man quits, the
woman struggles on, prodding friend
man, urging him toward his goal. Other-
wise, he would be left by the wayside.
WVOIIIHII is the stimulant for man, the
go-gctter, the achiever-without her,
man accomplishes nothing. She is his
Friend Moon says, Women are vamps
and men are fools. Merely a slight
change in the wording makes it read more
correctly. A few women are vamps
but all men are fools. Since the time
of Eve, woman has increased in intellect
and dexterity, until at the present day,
she is able to compete with those males
who have reached the highest degree of
insincerity and prevarication. Our male
admirers HJ have not yet realized that
the women have finally caught on.
Their smooth intriguing lines,
polished to the nth degree, go in one
ear and out the other. We are not fall-
ing hook, line, and sinker, to be disil-
lusioned as poor, innocent Maggie and
Phoebe might have been, but we .are hold-
ng our own. Are we vamps? No, but
ve are merely playing the game with you.
3ut the poor men are surprised, aston-
shed-they do not comprehend! They
ire becoming discouraged-instead of
'ur falling for the artifices, we are re-
aliating, and the men have not yet thor-
ughly realized that perhaps the women,
oo, are merely giving a line. They
still are fools enough to think that we
believe their tales.
Poor, abused darlings! Clinging to il-
lusions in matrimonial affairs! VVonder-
ful dreams wiped out when the honey-
moon is over! Likewise is the woman
disappointed. But she has come to ex-
pect, not an idol of perfection, but a com-
panion. But poor man !-he thinks
friend wife will always adore him as she
did when he wore his company manners,
was chivalrous, obliging, kind, consider-
ate-but alas! She knows her fate when
he comes down to breakfast, grumpy,
cross, unshaven and growls, Ez break-
fast reacly?,' But we are not shocked-
we expect it!
Our antagonist, so-to-speak, says,
They fthe girlsj make capital out of
the romantic ideas which come so natural-
ly to young men. Let us pause to
laugh. He goes on to say that we use
their tender passions for the purpose of
embarrassing and confusing our ad-
mirers. It was once said, Love is
blind.'l Surely this is proof. Friend
man seems to Want a Romeo and Juliet
love adair, moonlight and roses, twilight,
soft murmuring breezes, a full moon, en-
chanting music-bloohey! Come back to
1930, to the age when we do not believe in
all that romantic slush.
But, laying all pretentious malice and
joking aside, we confess We are not per-
fect! We, too, still succumb to your
manly charms in spite of all your defects.
We, who claim to have the upperhand in
opposite sex, are more
ensnared ourselves. We
realize that we can fool some of the men
all of the time, and all of the men some
of the time, but we can 't fool all of the
men all of the time.
