"Live to learn and you will learn to live."
"Good instruction is better than riches."
"Advance in learning as you advance in life."
"Education is the chief defense of nations."
Acquire not only learning but the habit of learning."

The Close of School

Our school has closed, and at it's close
We turn our minds elsewhere.
and fondly seek a brief repose
From study and from care.

And as our school days we review,
Sweet memories they bring
Of kindness and of friendship true,
Which e'er will round us cling.

For pleasantly we've spent our time,
And drank at Wisdom's fount,
And tried each day to higher climb
Her steps that upward mount.

As time flit's by I'll think of you.
Observe you in Life's race,
Your Features still will come in view.
Your well remembered face.

A fond farewell I give to you, 
My wishes best extend.
A love that springs from heart that's true
I give to you my friend.

Your Teacher.

School Days Two merry little tots,
One Day in time of you're,
First stared off to school,
A mile away or more.

A little basket new,
With dinner in they bore.
And booklets printed thru,
With A. B. C. Galore.

Term after term, they went,
And threaded classes thru,
On Wisdom's ways intent,
And her rich prize in view.

And ne'er will they forget.
Their teachers kind and true,
Their memory lingers yet
When school days they review.

On this school's closing day
That boy and girl are here.
(Tho' both grown up and they)
To greet you all with cheer.

And now the time has come about
The closing words to say
The shadow's fade and lengthen out
And mark declining day
