WILSON HIGH, FAREWELL

DearWilson the time for our farewell has come,
As before us new conquests we find,
And tho forward we press, our hearts fain would turn
To those halls we are leaving behind.

Thru the years we have toiled that your name might be first
Our task has been hard but we've won,
Alma Mater, we sadly bid farewell to you,
As our journey at Wilson is done.

Fare thee well, all our teachers, we love you each one,
In our thoughts you are ever revered,
And the memory of classmates and teachers~entwined
'Round our hearts shall he always endeared.

Now we leave you, dear Wilson; one fond tear we shed,
May your name e'er in honor repose.
And deep in our garden of memories, for you,
We shall plant our most beautiful rose.
