They say that our life is a challenge.
You must strive if we wish to win.
Opportunity’s door stands open.
Arise and enter therein.
Awake! Let you be up and doing.
This work you have chosen to do.
Whatever the work you are planning.
Just be sure that you carry it through.
The world is in need of all talent.
And tho’ all unworthy it seems.
You must use it, never conceal it.
It may far surpass all your dreams.
Your teachers have guided and helped you.
A successful life to pursue.
Let’s put forth your very best efforts.
To reach their ideals so true.
Now give our thanks to your high school.
You passed your last test and are done.
No matter how far you may wonder.
Fond memories will still linger on.
So say farewell to Logan High School.
And we say farewell with a sigh.
To our teachers, kind and so helpful.
Farewell to our dear Logan High.

This poem is for my oldest grand child when she
graduated from high school. She thought she knew everything…until she had to get a job.
