Mark this view of rustic verdure
Neath the blazing valley heat
See the finest architecture,
Engineered for little feet
Feet, that must in the bright future,
Tread on distant foreign soil.
Unfrequented by a teacher,
Wearied now by strain and toil.
Be constant, aspire, achieve
Learn to spurn the rigid cost
Thus when departing do no heave
Sorry sigh of heavy loss.
Drink in while you may the beauty
Mingle strong in nature's cup
Try with every sense of duty
That will keep high standards up
Therefore, let us strive together,
Aiming at a common cause
Parent, guardian, pupil, teacher
Strive, nor feel the need to pause
Till the toll of duty calls us
Like the sinking valley sun,
Which its heat send strong upon us
While its course is still unrun.
