The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, June 1910

The Dance

The Dance.

"The lamps shone o'er fair women and brave men;
A thousand hearts beat happily, and when
Music arose, with its voluptuous swell,
Soft eyes looked love to eyes that spoke again."

The Dance is to most one of the chief of tournament delights, and the Christchurch dance, held in the beautiful hall of Canterbury College, was certainly delightful. The arrangements had been well made. and, amidst the soft lights and the harmonious colouring of charming frocks, worn by charming wearers, the flitting moments sped by all too swiftly for the tripping feet, and all too soon the last strains of the music died softly into silence.
