Alma Mater at dusk

Ode to Alma

Oh! Alma, you illustrious figure, set in bronze,

Your gentle hands poised, outstretched,

Ready to call upon

Those yearning to inscribe their names; etched

space

Into the University, its grandeur’d walls echoing with tales of old

Only grown even sweeter with — lingering — time. 

Those who walk through, welcomed and told,

“Learn, labor, love here with thee and thine.”

space

On a mild day, when you, dear reader, venture to wander,

A warm, blanketing presence that nurtures

Will offer her heart in meetings,

space

And leave you with her tender message to ponder;

“To thy happy children of the future,

Those of the past send greetings.”
