SOUVENIR At Close of School

(Page 1)
Bring Back My School Days to Me

When beautiful school days are over
And grown men and women are we,
Tho' gone, we will think of them ever--
O, bring back my school days to me!

We long for our playmates of childhood
Who played with us day after day,
And little we dreamt how we loved them
Until they had gone far away.

O, beautiful, beautiful school days--
O, could your sweet mem'ry remain,
Thro' all of our pleasures and sorrows,
And bring back our school days again!

(Page 4)
Give love, and love to your life will flow,
A strength in your utmost need;
Have faith and a score of hearts will show
Their faith in your work and deed.
For life is the mirror of king and slave,
'Tis just what we are and do;
Then give to the world the best you have,
And the best will come back to you.
--Madeline Bridges.
