L ON G FELLOW WOULD HAVE MORALIZED AS PLEASINGLY AS EVER— Between the first and the second terms When the clouds are beginning to lower , Comes a moment of quizzes and final tests , That is known as the Teacher s Hour ! I hear in the office above me , The sound of their happy feet , Their laughter is carefree and merriest , Their voices are low and sweet . A whisper , and then a silence , Yet I know by the look in their _eyes , They are plotting and planning together To take me by surprise . A sudden rush on my weak points , Ten questions—and that is that , I try to answer the quizzes , I fall , and they leave me flat ! _Those questions creep into my dreams at night I feel them brush by my hair , If I try to _escape they surround me , They seem to be everywhere . Do you think , oh stoney eyed teachers Because you have got a degree , That you play fair when you land so hard , On poor little ignorant me ? Wes ( on Sunday P . M . )— Come on ; let s go to the Happy Hour . Ben Phillips— ...
