IN JUNIOR YEAR, by            
First Line: In junior year, ah, fancies light
Last Line: In junior year.


IN Junior year, ah, fancies light,
The soul unfettered, spirits bright!
Dwells aught of doubt or fear or night
In Junior year?

The storms of boyhood's age are past,
Youth's doubts and fears away are cast,
And budding manhood blooms at last,
In Junior year.

Desiring but ourselves to please,
On every impulse light we seize?
We smoke and take the world with ease,
In Junior year.

But mid the smoke wreaths as they rise,
With light as soft as evening skies,
There often smiles a pair of eyes,
In Junior year.

And as at dawn the brightness breaks
With quickening glow o'er summer lakes,
So love within the heart awakes,
In Junior year.
