    As we get up and all clap,
    For we are officially taking the graduation lap.

    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Commencement day has come and gone,
    So loud and proud we all sang our song.
    We wore our caps and threw them high,
    And stood for pictures on the lawn outside.

    Daydreams of greatness all across the land.
    All around us, our future is nigh,
    To classes and books, we say goodbye!

    No more classes to sit thru with the same old view
    Oh the struggles and stress, but still here we stand
    Grads in shiny caps, tassels in our hands

    A degree with honors may not be our fate
    But we battled classes - which was no small feat!
    Diploma in hand and ready for the next step,
    Our journey's just started - we have now been prepped.

    The day will see hugs and kisses, laughter and cries
    Wrap up that cap and gown and say goodbye.

  11. Leave This Place Behind
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    It's time to leave this place behind,
    We've studied long enough, that's for sure.
    We've worked hard in preparation,
    Now it's time to open new doors.

    Oh, the nights when we did cram,
    With dreams and thoughts of new plans.
    Now we have one final task to prove,
    That our minds have truly improved.

    We can finally leave this hall of books,
    It's time to toast with champagne flutes.
    We may be somewhat relieved and sad,
    But graduation's here, oh we should be glad!

    With your newfound knowledge,
    You have done it,
    You have finished college!
