Poem to our Founders
By Daniel Smith, Poet Laureate
As winter weaves her frozen web
children battle to rise from bed
Christmas cheer has long since passed
And New Year promises are fading fast
Yet still we look to this memorable day
That celebrates our founders and the roots they laid
On coldest days, her branches bloom
Keeping us safe and warm from winter’s gloom
The playground bustles and roars with triumph
And the classrooms whisper with quiet compliance
But when the rush has met its end
The silent echoes gradually descend
Our hallways whisper of days since passed
And all the uniqueness that here was cast
Texts book sing with stories told
With names inscribed, the guard of old
Each passing voice that flickers by
Has resilience and courage in huge supply
So to our Founder’s we owe this debt
They built these memories, so we never forget.
