Excerpt from College Hill Verse: Being Selections From Student Publications of Brown University, 1894-1904
And we know that the songs of the young men Are wiser than saws of the old When the bones have grown hard, and the steps have grown slow, And the hope of the heart has g... rown cold. There is truth in the songs of the young men, For the lives that are sanest and strong Keep step to a jubilant music And move to the metre of song.
Here are songs of the young men and old men For life may be young to four-score, And Spring fill the heart when the Winter of years Comes down with its drifts at our door. The songs of the young men and old men And let all men be equally young The youth of nineteen and of ninety, Whenever these songs shall be sung. Sam walter Foss.
