I think of you in terms of sunlight falling
With shadows interspersed along your walks,
And bells and beacons and loud, lusty calling
When teams are gathered for the final talks.

I think of you in autumn, staid and solemn,
With mystic doors that open wide and far,
No marble lintels, and no fluted column
But there with oaks, and with an evening star.

And always as I think of you I turn
Old penciled pages to your shining truth:
That Time works lightly in the rock and fern
But deeper in the dreaming heart of youth-
That men are measured by an afterglow
Of something that returns from long ago.

Leigh Hanes, `16
Poet Laureate of Virginia, 1949
