Lyric of the Leaves

Briskly marching along, the Sophomore Class executes a plus ultra Grand March.

In every joy, Mary stands at my side, ready to light, guard and guide.

More enchanting than any lyric poem is Judy Godvin, queen and her charming court at the Sophomore Dance: Patricia Rafferty, Nancy Dunn, Eileen O'Connor, and Kathleen DuLude.

Richard Green is the proud escort of Judy Godvin, newly crowned queen.

Lyric of the Leaves
Lyric of the Leaves

November 25, 1959

A swirl of moonbeam touched the night
As ___________________________ rang the bell,
And off we flew on a leaf so light
To our autumn carousel.
We danced in rusty ecstacy
To Saint Rita's musical spell
Then rode on star drops to _____________________
From Autumn's carousel.
As night drew up her curtain at __________________
And stardust shadows fell
We tripped a pathway homeward
While autumn sang farewell.

My "Lyric of the Leaves" memory is:

  • Brighter than the harvest moon
  • Like a flickering star
  • Strictly cloudy
