"So soon our visit is ended
Alas! before we intended
Vast skies of heavenly blue
Arrayed in a cloudless hue*
Rare shades cover the hillside
Yellow sweaters taint the inside
It's hard to realize that we're leaving
Since all the time we're weaving
Lovely dreams of places
Adorned by studious faces
Now only can we yearn
Dreaming of that beauteous isle of fern.
