Alumni weekend: possibly the most exciting weekend of the year. A time when all your (adult) friends come back and you feel as if nothing has changed from year to year. You feel like college could continue forever. You also think "Wow, I can't wait to be in their shoes and come back and have everyone obsess over the fact that I'm back." (until you realize it requires you going into the real world). So here's a lovely poem I wrote about the loving weekend.
There's a magical time of year
When a full campus will only bring you cheer
The mimosas flow and the beer bottles clink
As you and your friends tailgate and drink
The chilly weather makes its way in
You pull on a sweater and can't help but grin
So many people come to enjoy
The happiness that HC employs
Alumni flow in from through the years
And tell stories of joy and tears
Old teammates are here to remind you of
All the people you miss and love
But that's okay, because this weekend is for
A little memory lane tour
Because the Holy Cross experience
Is definitely not mysterious
We all love our school
I'll just end with "HC RULES!"
So I'm not a poet, and I'd be lying if i didn't say that I believe it's a poem as long as it rhymes, but I believe I have encompassed my feelings of this weekend!
