No doubt it is all for the best: no doubt some day
the Keeley Institute will vanish from among us, the

briety will reign in the land, but that does not prevent
us from being stirred by the memoirs of the Michigan

have been snatched from us, for that phase of college
life which was a part of it for centuries during which,
we dare say, colleges turned out no greater number
of second story men and Keeley Institute patrons than
they do now.

When wasting snow leaves bare some bit of ground
And through the trees there comes a breath of
Spring,
There's no awakening of your Love to sing,
For you have sung to me the year around.

And all the world has turned its face aside,
But you have never gone from me, nor tried
To guard the quiet things Love had to say.

And Life is halted on the verge of sleep,
The lasting quiet of your charm will keep
The spell of Love from growing pale and cold,
