SEPTEMBER'S SONNET

Oh those glorious summers
of years long past...
bring me back to the splendid
days of our youth
dearest sister, life of my heart,
with your soulful brown eyes
and dark flowing hair,
how beautiful that face,
such delightful grace, you are
a standout among us, like no other
yours is character that never fades
creating a bliss that never fails
I must say, I am the lucky one
I have you as my sister, bright as the sun...
For: Maria Elizabeth S. Rojas

WORDS OF WISDOM FROM OUR PAST LEADERS

     "'Political Correctness"
 ... is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end! "… HARRY S. TRUMAN

Time Is Precious

All of us are older
And wisdom is our aim;
Some of us have changed a lot
And some are much the same;
Some of us have gained some weight,
And some of us are slim.
Some of us have lost some hair,
And for some, the gray's set in.
Some of us are broke sometimes;
Some of us have wealth.
Some of us have aches and pains,
While others have good health.
Sometimes we're sad, but mostly happy,
Some of us are called Grandma;
And some are called "Grand-Pappy;"
We expect to see everyone next time;
We know we'll sure see you,
When we gather in three more years
-
We're Bellefonte's Class of '52.
