Farewell


Farewell

Eastie High, that school upon the hill
Mornings sunny and bright
It will be there still
A forever glowing light          
          
Eastie High has been like family
Fond memories I share
In front of the school, a beautiful tree
Whose leaves and branches grow strong and fair
          
The image of a late comrade and friend
Who unselfishly taught with care
Students of Eastie High, until her end
Although her spirit will always be there
          
With its colors blue and gold
Eastie High is a winning team
Stories waiting, yet to be told
Of students, who can reach their dreams
          
Eastie High, that school upon the hill
A marvelous journey, as I turn in the key once handed to me
It will be there still
Farewell, colleagues and friends, you have been like family

JANET IRENE GRIFFIN ŠJune 2008


"A hundred years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in the bank...but the world may be a better place because I made a difference in the life of a child." -- Forest Witcraft
