Today as we remembered
Those bright eyes long away passed,
With a vision surpassed
A zeal that outclassed-
The contemporaries, who accepted
Him a living modelled
To simple living high thinking
A literary torch bearer for little nymphs. Aimed
Un thought goals -strived and achieved.
Pray! all you associated;
Bless his soul as much blessed
Us, with ideals and morals he bestowed.
Garden be the mound wherein he's rested
O founder! our memories are sweetened
With the legacy you unfolded
For us, to pursue as sacrament scrolled.
We thanking thee- are pledged
To keep alight the path kindled-
Glowed, nurtured and torched
Till times unknown -brilliantly ignited.
