We Are Golden!
by Gerard J. Surprenant
We Are Golden....
A half a century has flown since we strolled the halls of
Where we worked, played, won, lost
Not knowing what we did not know
As with Yeats, “…in reverie, with the immortality of dreams
in our pilgrim souls,”
We took with us precious lessons on our crusade of life.
Our captivity ransomed by degrees, service and life itself,
We followed every burning star wished upon,
Searching for something to do, someone to love
and a future to hope for.
Here, grayed by time, wiser by experience and portioned
with happiness and peace,
Together, once again,
Unafraid of the future,
With feet deeply planted in the past
And our minds absorbed by the present,
There resides in us a bond,
Unbroken by time,
Strengthened by memories,
And shared with fondness.
Our history . . . . .
We are the Class of 1960 . . . . . We are Golden.
