"A BOY'S VACATION TIME" Hail, that long awaited day When the school books laid away, All the tho'ts of merry youngsters Turn from pages back to play. Done with lessons and with rule Done with teacher and with school Stray the vagrant hearts of childhood To the tempting wood and pool. Say, did sun e'er brightly shine As when with his rod and line Tramps the barefoot boy a fishin' And the waters' clear and fine Sweet the murmur of the trees And what glories now he sees In the chatter of the wild birds And the buzz of bumble-bees. Where the green woods cry and call Thru the summer'to the fall, "We are waiting, waiting, waiting With a welcome for you all" Where the lads take up the cry With an echo shrill and high "We are coming, coming, coming For vacation time is nigh." Oh, my heart goes back and sighs With the pipping calls and cries From the hearts of merry youngsters Like a song of triumph rise. And I would that rune and rhyme Might be splendid and sublime And my heart tell the story Of a boy's vacation time. —Foley. Sam Greengard left for a few days visit in Scobey, Mont.
