Student Writes Poem
About Dead Classmate

Allan Thomas, Editor
Virginia Ostler, Associate Editor
HAWTHORNE SCHOOL-In remembrance
of our beloved classmate,
Kenneth Averett, who died
February 4, 1935, we dedicate this
poem:

TO A CLASSMATE

Why did he leave us, oh, Mighty
One?

Was it because his work on earth
was done?

Was there a reason for him to depart
From those who loved him with all
their hearts?

But we shouldn't be mourning; he's
happier there;
To give him all joy is only fair.
But somehow we can't help sorrow
for a friend.

For wasn't he true to the very end?
But we'll always remember him as
a man
Who could "take it" as well as anyone
can.

He'll always be in our memory as
loyal and true,
Until our departure, when we "pass
through."

—Helen Van Cott, 11A.
