Valedictory victory of the kindergarten class,
remember that the greatness of your glory soon shall pass.
I'll come along in first grade, and I'll force you to salute;
if I should reign 'til second grade, why that would still be moot.
No one will remember the rank in which we rate,
for other matters matter more when we all graduate.
And if a Tiffany window should adorn your palace bright,
may it remind you of the leaves that dabble in the light.
