The poetry for Farewell Day


Years here have passed by,
many a winter and spring rolled away
The honeyed days we had in here
in free mind and innocence fair.
Never are to return forth.
Say I this in full truth.

A sanctuary is to us
Our safe haven, secured campus

Yet, from it we part now
like the calf that leaves the cow,
As the cub severs from brave lion
nurtured full in its den

We thus take a breach.
To our alma mater make a valediction.
A farewell to Mother,
these children do festivize here.

Hence we are here gathered.
For an academic rite.
Our school’s ultimate event.

Hence, we here did collect,
to mark an event when we part,
but note we do weep at heart.

Thus, everyone here we welcome
Pray, do make this wholesome
