The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review October 1914

A Toast

A Toast.

You may search the whole spectrum of colour and shade,
Dame Nature's vast storehouse with beauties arrayed,
And the loveliest object that ever was made
         Is a woman!
So here's to the prettiest,
                  Here's to the wittiest,
Here's to the truest of all who are true!
Here's to the only one,
                  Here's to them all in one—
"Sweetheart, to you!"
Youth, 'tis the Spring of Life, radiant, gay,
Storms do but clear the air, brighten the day;
Love light in starlit eyes—who shall say nay?
So, here's to thee, Youth,
                  Here's to thee, Truth!
And here's to the golden illusions ye bring!
Here's to to-day!
                  Let cares fly away!
"Drink to the Spring."
