The trump of ambition, loud sounding and shrill, May blow its long blast, but the echoes are still, The spring-tides are past, but no billow may reachThe spoils they have landed far up on the beach.
We see that Time robs us, we know that he cheats, But we still find a charm in his pleasant deceits, While he leaves the remembrance of all that was best, Love, friendship, and hope, and the promise of rest.
Sweet shadows of twilight! how calm their repose, While the dewdrops fall soft in the breast
... of the rose!How blest to the toiler his hour of releaseWhen the vesper is heard with its whisper of peace!
Then here's to the wrinkled old miser, our friend;May he send us his bills to the century's end, And lend us the moments no sorrow alloys, Till he squares his account with the last of "The Boys. " FOR CLASS MEETING 1875 IT is a pity and a shame--alas! alas! I know it is, To tread the trodden grapes again, but so it has been, so it is;The purple vintage long is past, with ripenedclusters bursting soThey filled the wine-vats to the brim, -'t is strangeyou will be thirsting so!
