We think you've justly earned;
You sent us each a valentine,
Your gift is now returned.
We're plain folks every one;
You've played a clever trick on us,
We thank you for the fun.
(Our words, though blunt are true),
At home, abroad, by night or day,
We all wish well to you.
The sunshine of your mind;
Kind friends, warm hearts, and happy hours,
Through life we trust you'll find.
In future years you stray,
There shall not want our earnest prayer
To speed you on your way. .
