The Poet's Page of the 1946 yearbook contained:
Seasons Just Luck
Each man has his day
Gosh Mon. I sure am lucky,
A renowned poet once wrote,
Just as lucky as can be,
Also each season has its pla y Nope, I didn't make an A today
This lowly poet now quotes.
Didn't even make a C.
Each season seems the best of all
You're wrong, it wasn't that Mom.
As each comes in its turn, I didn't win a prize
Winter, spring, summer, and fall
It isn't new at all, I'd say,
All help us to live and to learn.
Just an old but good surprise.
No, I didn't find a nickel
Ah gee, I think you're so dumb
It's nothing like that at all.
Of course my Daddy knows it
Come on, just one more guess!
Gee Whiz, you're wrong again Mom,
I might as well confess.
Even all the neighbors know it
And I guess that you do too,
It's just that I think I'm lucky
Cause I was born to you.
