Our SHS Class of 1957 Poet Laureate, William Dalrymple, wrote a poem especially for us here at Reunion time. We are pleased to share it with you.

A "Looking Back"

Fifty years!… I say "Oh My Gosh"

Is that how long it’s been?

It, only, was, just, yesterday

Not long ago! - it seems.

But count the things that happened since

We last said our goodbyes

The World; Our Worlds; -Look what’s transpired,

Before our very eyes.

The "Seventies" now there’s a time                                             

That changed the way we were

Before, we tried to blend in well

It’s "Me first" NOW, -for sure.

And other decades, one by one,

That altered all our lives

But, still, within our own true minds

Morality survives.

As Teenagers in the Fifties

We got this "Moral Base"

That taught us, then, a right from wrong

From which we seldom strayed.

So well ingrained were rules and such

They joke about it now

But note the way they act and care

We had it right, somehow.

Oh, I’m not going to "rant" about

The way things should now be

But, I’m just glad I had the chance

To live, "then" –you and me.                                                       

We must have been a healthy lot

Just look ‘round at our peers

So many of us have survived

The onslaughts of these years

But on a melancholy note,

I’d really hoped to see

Some of my High School Guys and Gals

They were like family.

I’d like to give a toast to "US"

And those of us now gone

We’ve strived to make a better world-

A world worth passing on.
