Tl ES TU CE THAL l-lave you noTiced The worn places on The sTairs, each sTep a cupped hand cushioning The eager Tread oT many TeeT7 l-lave you noTiced The denTs in The lockers, The nicks on every door, some made This year- some lasT year- some, years beTore? l-lave you ever sTood in The corridors aTTer Three-TiTTeen when The day's noises and Their echoes have gone wiTh Billy and Dick and Jane and BeTTy To The bus-sTop? IT you haven'T noTiced, IT you haven'T waiTed, Try iT Today ..... A glimmer oT sunlighT Talls on The plaques and cups in The Trophy case. Shadows play across The Tace oT The bronze TribuTe To The Dead oT World War l. A Milky Way oT golden dusT swarm in The slanTing ray OT sun and cling To The glass oT The audiTorium doors and To The brighT new l-lonor Roll Tor The Dead oT World War ll .... O There aren'T words in our modern idiom To praise The dead. They are deacl. They died premaTurely in a war ThaT swirled upon The land like a sudden sTorm on a quieT summer nighT. These are The names- Names OT The Dead. These were names on The rollcalls in The rooms you have sTudied in Today. These names wenT wiTh Taces and bodies and young ideas and dogeared TexTbooks WiTh J. L. loves D. G. and groups oT Two and Three Greek leTTers wriTTen on The covers. Your school was Theirs once: ' STUUE TS THTTHE PHESE T A U THE PUT HE moTes Class OT 'IS Class oT '24 Class oT '37 Class oT '42 Classes oT old, dead years- Their TeeT up and down sTairs made smooTh worn places in The cemenT. FooTprinTs on The sTairs oT Time. Yea, These are The Dead: Boys who made good grades and some who skipped geomeTry classes in The spring oT bygone years. The names here mean noThing To you. You have noT seen Them. They died in Tevered iungles Buna, Gona, Kwaialein. They died on bleak beaches Anzio, Normandy, lwo. They are dead. The sound oT moThers' grieTs are muTTled now. The picTures oT old classes hanging high on The walls are muTe. You hear The maid sweeping Today's accumulaTion oT dusT and pencil shavings and paper scraps and graded TesT papers and hasTily wadded gum, Then There is silence- Now do you Teel The presence oT ghosTs, Do you hear Their whispered warnings? O liTTle Warriors oT Memphis CenTral l-ligh School, There is more here Than puppy love and marks on a card and sTudenT elecTions and TesTs on Chaucer or quadraTic equaTions. You can learn someThing ThaT isn'T Tound in a hisTory lesson: You can learn a spiriT, a spiral ouT oT soggy ashes, a cry againsT The cynic world ThaT your diploma wiTh The green and gold ribbon on guaranTees you a Trip inTo.. . . Slide The ball oT your TooT inTo The cup oT a worn sTairsTep, Look and LisTen To The ghosTly Teachers who move wiTh The sun and shadow in The dim old corridors. For a brieT momenT you will be sTudying a lesson Trom anoTher world. -Richard ClemenT Wood Class oT '43 Jan. I8, l946
