Cropped from a Scan by Barbara Taylor Jackson

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Always smiling, and ready to help,

Always cheerful, and full of pep;

Always kind, always true,

Pal o’Mine, this is you!

Ever ready to do her part,

Winning her way into ev’ryone’s heart;

Never downed, rarely blue,

Pal o’Mine, this is you!

—–

Speaks so kindly of everyone,

Happy in her tasks well-done,

Cheers me up when I’m blue–

Pal o’Mine–this is you!

—–

May God bless her every day,

Help her always on Life’s way;

Help me deserve a friend so true–

Pal o’Mine–I love you!

EDITOR’S COMMENT:

Circumstantial evidence leads me to conclude, via Ockham’s Razor, that “L.C. On the Hill” is LaGrange College, LaGrange, Georgia, with its campus on a hill.  My grandmother, Nell Barrett Taylor (1915-2001) was a student there in 1932.  The college was not yet coed, so maybe her brother Randolph was visiting her.  And he was obviously recuperating from a break-up with a girlfriend.

AUGUST 10, 2013 COMMON ERA

As I sit alone at my window,

I hear not a sound,

For the town is still and sleeping

As the watchman makes his round.

—–

The moon is in the heavens,

Looking majestically down,

Upon the earth beneath it,

Upon the sleeping town.

—–

The moon descends the western sky,

And I watch its fading glory,

I think what it means to me–

A few lines will tell the story.

—–

The majestic moon, riding high,

Was the height of our happy love.

With the fading splendor of the moon,

Dark clouds loiter above.

—–

These clouds, which hang so lovely,

Are the darkness which I now know–

For your love is mine no longer,

And I still love you so.
