What will we do for a topic or two
To add to a little chat’s fun?

We’ll all act the same as before.
All up and down the campus walks,
The students hasten daily.
They frisk along to class and lab,
With faces smiling gaily.
They do not loiter on their way;
Library steps are lonely.
They never, never, pause and stay
On that bench for seniors only.

Each flitting hour spend!
With fluttering from flower to flower,
Her days must fleetly wend.
Ah, let us, like the butterfly,
Be happy all the day,
For, boys and girls with faces bright,
This is the nicest way.
