Friend who for near a decade's round
In nobie causo have led;
Choice mental pabulum have found
For us tho feast to spread.
Who when each fortnight camo was sure,
Tho whole long season through,
A charmluff programme to secure,
Sweet music, lectures new.
Where friends meet friends with jrrcclinss
In pause of interlude;
And sons and recitations charm
And touch tho lighter mood.
Savants and scholars essays read.
Of various trend of thought;
And too erstwhile doth poet plead
The beauties fancy caught.
Wo measure backward year by year,
And sum each mental ,1oy;
And fain would make return sincere
That time can no'er destroy.
We. one, in unity, would show
That warm our feolings be;
Acsopt this gift of silver Blow
Whercfrom to pour your tea.
As ailv'ry age approaches near,
And silver crowns your head.
To friends of old tho chulico here
Bind you, llko silver thread.
Aiid may it seem though fancy wrought
Whono'er a cup you pour,
That nvery tea oup holds a thought
Of fr'onds, dear friends of yore.
