    Ay, soon upon the stage of life,
  Sweet, happy children, you will rise,
To mingle in its care and strife,
  Or early find the peaceful skies.
Then be it yours, while you pursue
  The golden moments, quick to haste
Some noble work of love to do,
  Nor suffer one bright hour to waste.
          School is out.
 
William Makepeace Thackeray. (1811–1863)

    Although I enter not,
Yet round about the spot
  Ofttimes I hover;
And near the sacred gate
With longing eyes I wait,
  Expectant of her.
